A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words

I can't believe how much changes in the course of a year. Looking back I couldn't have told you all the many things I did, the emotions I felt, or the events that took place. Yesterday I had 19 rolls of film developed (yes 19!! I know, I shouldn't have put it off but I did) equaling about a year and a halves worth of memories. That's a lot to take in.

I was shocked by some of the things I saw as I looked through them. My friend who lost her mind was still in my life then (for more on her click here). I was surprised at first to see her face there but then I was just sad. I miss seeing her and having that friend in my life. Oh how a little changes so many things. Looking at pictures of myself I could see how I've changed over just that small period of time. I cherish seeing the new born babies who are now walking, babbling 10-13 month olds. I laughed at the silly things we have done over the year and I fought tears thinking about the many joys.

I love pictures. I love giant albums that I can flip through and remember the times in my life I try so hard not to forget. I enjoy knowing that my memories are stored somewhere amongst the pages and that I can pick them up any time I need to. If a picture truly is worth a thousand words I am glad I have a library's worth.

Brandy, I also love to take pictures and have a library's worth of memory (although most of my pictures lately are of family members and not myself). I stopped taking so many pictures of myself after a couple of years of marriage because I had gained weight. But even though I'm not in many of those pictures, I remember the events so clearly and they bring so much joy and happiness every time I look at them. I once told DH that if our home ever burns down (God forbid) that the only things I would try to rescue would be my photo albums, and I meant it.
