Indulge me if you will, for a few moments of thought.
When you look through old albums and see pictures of your Grandparents, how does that make you feel?
When you see images of your mom and dad, what does it do to your heart? How do you feel?
What about photographs of you with your parents
Pictures of your children? Do they make you smile? Especially when they pull those crazy faces!
Do you see how important photographs are? How they are little documents of your history of your story, how they can take you out of the craziness that is life and transport you back to a memory and a time that in all likelihood, makes you smile and your heart fill with love…. Even if it is a longing, it is still love.
It is still a piece of you.
That is how important it is to be in photographs!
That is how important it is to have photographs in a printed form.
Im not sure if you used to do this, but I used to love going through the box of images my mom kept and asking questions, for mother’s day or one of her birthdays I bought an album and I created her family history with images from that box of photographs, from when she was a baby to her siblings and parents and her marriage etc….. you can just imagine how much she loved that………..
There were lots of tears.
Photographs are so immensely important, just ask anyone who has had to say goodbye to a loved family member.
Have photographs taken
BE in those photographs…. Your children and your grandchildren need you to be.
Have them printed and then have fun designing your own albums. Or have them designed for you. Please just make sure you have them.
Organise your images!!! GO!
