My favorite photo


This is my favorite photo of myself. It was taken on a warm May day at my parents home. After almost two years of sleepless nights and an inconsolable child, things were finally getting better. Lydia and I spent the day laughing and running. We wanted to get a photo for "Daddy's Day" to frame for Shane's desk at work. I remember that day feeling complete and utter joy in my daughter and in knowing I was her mother. Feeling gratitude to God He had sent her to me. I finally knew that things really were going to be okay. For the first time in a long time, I felt happy. That day I felt beautiful. I recently put it out to remind me that things do get better, and it usually happens in the Springtime.
