It Doesn't Matter

The other night my son came to me and hugged me. He kissed me on the cheek. Then he stood there quietly for a moment.

"Mom?" he said...."does it matter?"
"Does what matter?" I answered
"Does it matter if you're pretty?"
"What do you think?" I asked.
He stood for a minute.
"No.... it doesn't matter at all."

He ran off.....
He came back.

"Even if it doesn't matter... you're still beautiful."

Be still my heart. My kid makes me feel like a rock star everyday!

That is the sweetest thing to have said... made me sigh a bit.
I wanted to let you know that I am inspired by the words under your picture/profile notes (Author Unkown). I am moved by them and glad you have them noted. I enjoy sayings and have some listed on my side bar. When I redo my site I want a whole page of them. Anywho... I am rambling but just felt inspired to comment for the first time on you blog and I have been following for a while now.
Take care.

while I debating the whole photographing other people this, I worried so much that others would expect things from me. that I wouldn't be able to live up to that. Then I read this. My attitude changed that day. I shoot in a way that makes ME happy. Ever evolving, but my way. People were much more responsive to that.

Kara~ Thanks!!!!
