I almost deleted it because:
1) Unflattering angle
2) I wasn’t doing anything interesting
But then I thought about how some of my favorite photos of my grandma are unflattering pictures of her in the kitchen – because she spent time in there preparing food for the people she loved.
I also thought about how I didn’t want my daughter to feel like something sweet she did wasn’t good enough.
So this photo stays. And it kinda makes me smile, because this is my daughter’s view and perspective of her mama – flipping sausages and “making” toast for a simple breakfast.
Then sitting down to eat it together.
And it’s a sweet reminder that breakfast is no longer our most hectic meal of the day, because we’ve gotten back into a good morning routine.
It’s also a reminder that the moments I feel are mundane or invisible, are seen by the people who matter most to me. And even when the moments are truly invisible, even to the people who I love the most, they’re still seen by the One who created the universe.
And that’s enough.
“Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies.” Proverbs 31:10 (KJV)
“When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, The moon and the stars, which You have ordained, What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? For You have made him a little lower than the angels, And You have crowned him with glory and honor.” Psalm 8:3-5 (NKJV)
To the mom out there, nourishing your kids’ bodies and nurturing their souls, remember that your works are so valuable!
