Our Captured Life – The Gifts Of The Last 3 Months

   So thankful for these moments– these tidbits–that make up life.
Capturing the moments visually is a gift.
It keeps me present, it keeps me thankful, & reminds me to live NEW!

    Amy, you look awesome! More especially after 3 surgeries in 3 months. I am praying that there will be no more in your future. God is so good! He knows and has a reason for everything under the sun. ( Or would that be SON?). : )
