Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: I want to remember...

I want to remember...

Today was the kind of day I want to remember.

Nothing particular happened today. But I want to remember the simple things.

I want to remember that I didn't have to get up at 7:30am to race to make it to my corporate job like I used to do in 2004. I now have the luxury of hitting the snooze button. Again. And again.

I want to remember that when I finally woke up, my dog, Rhett, licked my entire hand with good morning kisses.

I want to remember that as much as I hate exercising, I have good health to get up and go run on the treadmill. The people I'm running for in my upcoming marathon don't have that luxury.

I want to remember how cute Stephen's face looks when he sends me his morning kiss pic via text. Every morning.

I want to remember that I got a package in the mail and opened up a magazine to discover The Knot Florida magazine chose me as one of the Best of 2010 Wedding Photographers in North Florida. And that I blogged about 3 other magazines I was featured in. (Eek! Still pinching myself!)

I want to remember that I can call my mom and always reach her from my iPhone to hers. That she is on the other line, healthy and still here.

I want to remember that though I'm behind on editing and emails, that I have work I'm behind on. That God still pays my bills and provides new work.

I want to remember that I checked my bank accounts this morning and I have more money in the bank at the end of this year than I've ever seen in previous years. It's a great reminder that, yes, when we tithe, God is faithful to bless that.

I want to remember that even though I've been battling my crazy adult acne, I only have one zit on my face today instead of 30 like earlier this year. And that that is the worst of my health problems.

I want to remember that this Christmas season isn't about materialism and gifts, but about Jesus' birthday.

I want to remember how special last Christmas was this time last year.

I want to remember that it's December, and I can still walk outside and sweat. That Florida weather rocks and keeps me warm.

I want to remember how I am loved by friends who rallied around me with amazing comments when a bully was picking on me in a previous blog entry.

I want to remember how amazing Sara & Andrew's wedding album looked before I pass it onto them. Seeing the finished product reminds me of why I do what I do.

I want to remember how much I am blessed with and to stop overlooking the little things that are really big things.

I want to remember that today was another day God chose for me to live. And I want to continue to wake up tomorrow shouting "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!" like I did when this day started.

Although I LOVE your photography posts (your work is brilliant!) I really enjoy reading your personal posts. You share so much of yourself with readers and are so inspirational. I love how honest you are about your spirituality as well.

I have a long way to go in the photography world, but posts like this put things in real perspective.
{thank you!}
