as i sit here looking back on the pictures i captured this month, many thoughts come to my mind. they are all pictures without my children in them; yet their presence in each of these is undeniable.   i see memories that i will cherish forever.  i see days spent together in our school room learning as a family, afternoons in the pool filled with laughter, lovies that have been special since birth, signs of creativity throughout our home, and the presence of  bath time rituals filled with memories so sweet.  i know that one day none of these things will fill my home.   not in this same way.  this is our life right now and i am grateful to have these stories to cherish forever.  today is so very special.

be sure to head over to the KIDS WERE HERE BLOG and see what the other ladies have captured.
