I have to admit it. I LOVE to take pictures. I want to capture every moment so I can go back and re-live it all over again. My family however, does not share my enthusiasm.

The youth at my church, this is what I get when I ask to take their picture.

 My daughter was in her first "big" production this year for the American Music Theatre Christmas show. I was so excited I was going to be a stage mom! I spent every single moment trying to capture it on film so she would be able to have the memories for her children.

Last Easter trying to take family pictures, my niece and my mother turn their heads away.

My daughter gives me an egg in the face this Easter.

I spent the entire day and part of the night trying to get others to let me take their picture. Hiding behind furniture, bushes, whatever it took to get the perfect shot.

Whenever I try to take their pictures I either get a hand in front of the face or a turn of the head. I don't get it. Why don't they want me to capture their face for my scrapbooks. They are so unsupportive.

Finally, a light bulb came on for me this week. I have been spending so much time trying to capture the moments, that I am actually missing out on the moments in my life. No more. From now on, I plan to savor the moment at hand and not try to capture it for the future.

Wow. What a revelation!!
