get it scrapped!: good day, baby. love you
a couple years ago i noticed that i was in the bad habit of dropping him off late to school and fussing at him to hurry, hurry, hurry. noticing made me sad and i changed. i didn't change my habit of lateness, but i did change my reaction to it. since this realization, no matter if we're early or late, i simply tell him, "good day, baby. love you." i have never been more thankful for these words.
i snapped this photo as i dropped him off at school the day after. i wanted to hold him close to me, but i could not. i sent him off with a "good day, baby. love you." and a prayer. the photo is blurry and poorly composed, but in its imperfections it captures the transient nature of the moment and our lives. life is brief, but love is eternal. when he looks back at me, i hope his memories always tell him "good day, baby. love you."
an article on using stencils and paints over at get it scrapped. it's a good one.
i have a new page in progress. i didn't quite finish as i had to stop to help g with his timeline project (bonus point awarded!). and i blogged again!
