Tomorrow is my birthday.. well actually in about an hour, my birthday will start.
But I wasn't super thrilled.. in fact I bordered on being upset.
It's not that I'm worried about getting old. In fact, after having a few scary experiences I'm always thankful to turn another year older. Thank you GOD for keeping me on earth for another year!
It sounds silly... but I was upset that I have no baby pictures of myself. NONE. In fact I have a handful of pictures from when I was a toddler that my aunt passed to me but that is it. I have pictures from high school, but when I showed those to Lainey and Julianne, they both said "But MOMMY! You look the same!" Bless you children, but I'm getting you an eye appointment STAT!
I think it hit me this year because I have a new little one and we are actively photojournaling FOUR children these days!
So.. what did I do about it?
Well.. I took it to my Father. You know.. the one on call 24/7 to hear my cries, my praise, etc?
Yup.. I prayed and I asked God to make my heart STOP hurting or to help me get some pictures.
You won't believe this.
I got a phone call yesterday from my Aunt saying she stumbled across some photoalbums and wanted to know if I had any of my baby pictures? No.. I sure don't. The next question was "Would you like me to scan them and give you an electronic copy? Or 8 x 10's? Or 5 x 7's or do you have a preference?"
I didn't know what to say at first. She thought we were disconnected because I said nothing.
All I could think was "First I go from no pictures to pictures in whatever form or size I want?"
So I said "Whatever's easiest."
And when I hung up the phone, I got to share with my girls that God is awesome and sending us pictures of mama as a baby....
God is so good!
