FAMILY SESSION: Hanging on tightly

I was 27 when I became a momma...

it was all I ever wanted...

I didn't care if I had designer clothes or a big house or a fancy car...I just wanted to be a mother...I wanted to jump in over my head and love on tiny humans that were the result of my undying love for their daddy...

I knew that it would be the most taxing, exhausting, and sometimes exasperating time I would ever endure...I also knew that my daughters trusted me implicitly...I was their everything and my job from the moment they were born was to help them to mature into independent, confident, humble, compassionate women...

I never knew if I was doing it "right", but I sacrificed everything else for the pursuit of giving it all that I had...my thoughts, the books I read, the energies I expended...it all funneled into my family...

what I knew in my head, but didn't understand what it meant to my heart...was that little by little, they become more independent...

they "need" you a little less and less each day...

they learn how to hold a spoon...
how to say their ABCs...
how to put on their dresses...
how to open a door...
how to buckle their carseat...
how to tie their shoes...
how to brush their hair...
how to get on the school bus...
how to write their name...
how to make their own lunch...
how to read a book on their own...
how to do their homework...
how to ride a two-wheeler...
how to drive a car...
how to schedule classes...

It doesn't happen all at once, but it sometimes it feels like I just woke up one morning and my eldest towered over me and now steals my clothes and drives my car!

And I know that just a couple more years and it's applying to college...and one day, it will be walking her down an aisle and perhaps her desiring to be a momma herself...

It's not all rainbows and cupcakes...life is a series of choices and commitment and choosing to hang on tightly to what is true...

it's committing to walking hand in hand and taking everyday as it comes...

it's cherishing moments, while still getting the laundry done & dinner made...

This family has this mindset...
the hanging on tightly...the cherishing the moments...and I'm so thankful to have the opportunity to capture the meaningful, memorable and HAPPY for them...for all the years to come...
to remember...
