I've heard this before and thought it was so cliche. But, this morning I looked at my 4 year old and wondered how she got to be 4. It isn't that I feel I missed out on the last 4 years...it's that I question what I have done - what I've accomplished - what I have become...in the last 4 years. There is nothing more I want in this world than to be doing what is pleasing to God. Than to know I'm on the right track - pursing the gifts He has given me. I have never felt before in my life that I'm "on the right track" as much as I do now. I am learning & growing (and failing & growing) in the field of Photography. I love this business. I love the people I meet. I love seeing a finished product and the few pictures that give me butterflies in my stomach because I feel "it's that good". I WANT to learn. I WANT to grow. I WANT to try. I WANT to fail. I know that if I never fail, I'll never learn.
I pray God uses me in an amazing way that what I do will ultimately glorify Him. It's most important to me. And, in 4 years I want to look back and say...WOW...look at ALL you've done.
Now, look at this sweet thing. Her Daddy's going to have to be careful with those big baby blues - you're precious Little Miss V!
