Kit Kat 08/23/2010
 
Kit Kat is what we call our sweet little Kathryn. As much as I wish I could keep all three of our children little forever, it just isn't possible and as Kathryn so frequently reminds me, it just isn't fair either. Oh how I wish I could make her understand that she will later dream of being young again. But I remember being where she is; and wishing I could "grow up" too. Kathryn asked me recently if she was old enough to have her own photo shoot, a grown up one. I have taken millions of photos of her, but I think she wanted what she has seen me do for others; the changing outfits, locations, bringing personal items along and helping her pose. I watched our sweet little girl debate over outfits, play with her hair to see what looked best, gather her personal items and look for accessories. It was then that I realized.... she has no idea! She is absolutely clueless to the beauty that she exudes. Her precious smile, her genuine heart, those deep blue eyes and that way she has about her. And it baffles me that she has no idea! This child gathered all these things so she could be beautiful when in fact, SHE is what made those things beautiful. I could have cried a river as I took these photos of our precious Kathryn. For me it was like a window; into past memories of past longings from my own childhood, in the present of loving that I am a mother to such a wonderful child and into the future of all the answered prayers I secretly whisper for her life. I hope you see what I see, Kathryn, when you look in that mirror.... a beautiful reflection of His love shining through you into the lives of so many others! What a blessing you are to us and all those who know you!
