About

I am a 48 year old wife and mother of four; Brady 20, Riley 17, Annie 14 and Josie 12.  I am also a professional photographer.  Around the age of 45 I started to notice some changes; for instance I began to gain weight more easily, I got a couple gray hairs and my body didn’t feel as “elastic” as it used to.  About a year ago I came upon a bumper sticker that read, “Someday I won’t be able to do this, today is not that day”.  The timing was perfect and it hit me in a very profound way.  So my mission in 2016 is to realize, appreciate and enjoy all of the things that I can do now.  Some things I will physically just not be able to do someday, others I hope to always be able to do but know that I won’t be able to do them as well or as fast.  And well the fact is that someday everything that I do here on earth will come to an end.  So there will be days that I will be acknowledging even the smallest and most mundane of blessings and trying to see them in a fresh new light.  The majority of my life I have suffered from major clinical depression, so I decided to document my journey in an effort to provide hope for myself on the days that I am lacking.  My son Brady suggested that I blog about it.  So what the heck- here I am blogging!  I have to be honest, it is uncomfortable for me to focus this much on myself.  As a mother of four, my soul focus has been my kids and other people for the last 20 years.  We’ve had an unusually rough last few years though and with 4 kids all in some stage of puberty right now I have been feeling extremely depleted.  So here’s to a new year and putting the effort into getting myself refueled so that I may continue to serve my family and all those around me! ❤
