Life moves quickly. I was just making Shabbos and now it’s already time to clean up. I was just getting married and now it’s been over five years. My oldest was just born and now he’s a preschooler. It was just Shavuos and now it’s Rosh Chodesh Tammuz. It can be dizzying. But there are still moments where life slows down for just long enough to take in something truly beautiful. An especially beautiful sunset. Niagara Falls. The simple joy in a baby’s play. Time is suspended as we are struck with awe; a snapshot is created in our minds. And then blammo! Back to the frenetic hustle and bustle of daily life.
Galit and Alison have a beautiful blogging tradition of capturing a memory. They take a picture, and using some of the nice free online resources (I like PicMonkey), add words to the photo to capture the memory. I love this, because as much as I think I will never forget a particularly adorable phase in my children’s lives, I do. I forget. This is a nice way to remember. Thank you ladies!
Wouldn’t this be a great idea to put together as an album? Or a gift to grandparents? I think so! Will I be organized enough to do it? Probably not, but if you are, good for you!
