“I will always love you”…
a daily commitment….
The hubs recently hung this photo and sign up in our bedroom. We have been meaning to hang it for some time now and finally got it done last week.
I’m not a huge “selfie” person….but this I love this picture.
I had to hang it up because I want to look at it as often as possible.
And the story behind this photo is pretty cool….
We hired a professional photographer about two years ago. He was a former colleague of my husband’s and was looking to get some more families photographed. We had never done this before and we were excited for him to capture the true “nature” of our family. Well, the hubs and I were watching the photographer take several pictures of the kids “frolicking” in the fall leaves. It was a photo I had requested so I was eager to see how it would turn out. As we watched the kids throw up the leaves and catch them, the hubs leans over me and wraps his arms around me. “Can we believe all those kids are ours? I love them so much”, he says. “I know.” I said.
At that moment, the photographer turns around and shouts, “Tammi”…..I look as he snaps a picture of us sharing that moment.
It’s one of the reasons I love this picture so much. It’s not staged. We weren’t “positioned”. It was just “us” loving our vocations in life. It’s our facial “yes” to our life together. It’s taking a brief moment to celebrate our life together…and the five little blessings created from that love.
We all need reminders….we create lists. We set alarms on our phones.
Let’s make sure we also fill our homes with reminders of love.
Let’s also remember what we are committing to daily..
