I have always hated having my picture taken and usually try to avoid the camera at all costs but today I have had a change of heart.
I was trying to find a picture of my mom for my Primary lesson and I looked through about 8 albums and could only find only 2 pictures. My mom hated having her picture taken and would almost get mad at us when we tried to take her picture, but now we have very few pictures of her to remember her by.
I came to realize that by being so paraniod about how I look in the picture I am taking something away from my children and grandchildren. I really miss my mom and I wish I had more pictures of her. Her grandchildren are hard pressed to remember her and what she looked like. I will try to be more co-operative of picture taking so that I can leave a photo geneology for my family.
After all a picture tells more than a thousand words.

Joshua age 3
Trenton age 10 months
I am so blessed to have such cute grandsons. They bring joy into my life every time I see them. I was fortunate enough to have Jonathan, Amanda, Josh and Trent to visit this last weekend. They are able to visit often and I really enjoy having them come. I wish that Erin and Darrin and Isaiah lived closer. I miss not seeing them as often as I would like but I am excited about visiting them at Easter. I can hardly wait. I really enjoy being a grandma and love my kids and grandkids. Family is everything.
