Thoughts of Mothers Day

Mother’s Day has got me thinking….

I’m a mum and a grandma and I’m always behind a camera.

It takes quite a lot of coaxing to get me in front of the camera, I hate seeing myself in photos… but then I don’t see what others see, they don’t see my excess weight, my double chin, and everything else I see…

The sad thing is, I looked around my walls and my children’s walls and I didn’t see me, although I’m there in person all the time.

What would it be like if I wasn’t around anymore?

Would I be forgotten?

No one could pick up a photo of me and remember special moments we had, or talk about me to future grandchildren.

That one photo has so much more meaning than we give it credit.

It’s much more than how we look

it’s about who we are and what we mean to others.

Don’t wait until you are happy with how you look,

Be honest, we are women,

will we ever really be happy with our appearance?

Take that photo right now, hang it on a wall, put it in an album, it’s one of the most important things you can do for your family today.
