Late yesterday afternoon, my two younger boys asked if I had a little extra time. Honestly, I felt like I didn’t. It had been a typical busy day and I had a busy night ahead, but I said, “Yes!”
When they were ready, they told me to come into the great room. They were both wearing suit jackets and ties. Seriously . . . SO ADORABLE.
They held a church service where they traded off preaching and served communion. After the closing prayer (which was precious and heartfelt) they announced that immediately following the service there was a dance. One of the boys had found a record called Waltz Songs for Moms and Dads. They took turns dancing with me around the room. And then they served apple sauce.
I’m so glad I said, “Yes!” I’m so glad I stopped for twenty minutes. Boys are the sweetest.
This might sound funny, but as a photographer you can spend more time photographing other people and their families than you do your own. This year my goal is to be more intentional about capturing everyday moments with my family as much as possible and I made it all the way through January. Yay!
