This week, Sally asked us to focus on what makes us special. Fill in the blank, she said: "You are ________"
There are so many things that make each of us special. One of the best things about this challenge is the window it has provided into the lives of the participants.
From raising goats to painted shoes and from bread baking to clothes lines, gorgeous windows, cornerless walls, puppy eyes and amazing sketches, I've been able to see many things that make the participants so special.
When it came to myself, though, I wasn't quite sure what to photograph. While I was debating, it occurred to me that how we see ourselves is sometimes dependent on how others see us.
Our best traits (and sometimes our worst ones) are magnified by the company we keep. The best people in our lives are the ones who make us a bit better every day.
With that in mind, I can say that I never feel more special than when the kiddo looks at me with her eyes filled with love.
She is kind and smart and funny and she makes every day a joy. She brings out the best in me.
So, Sally, I am a loving mother to an amazing kiddo!
