May my memory never fail me….

Sometimes life can get overwhelming with all of the new apps and options for picture-taking and videos capturing the moment…

I have more pictures than I care to admit saved on my computer and backed up to a drive, but I rarely do much with them….

Today I opted not to take my camera or my phone to the pool. I went hand in hand with Peter, Isaiah and Johanna….

I realized how fun it was to watch the moments without thinking about capturing them….

To watch Peter play with Johanna in the sand pit at the pool…

To listen to Isaiah’s concern that the horn was really for a drill and no one was really hurt….

To make a train of swimming bodies with them and to hang out in the deep end cause it is way less busy there….(as said by the expert swimming four-year old)

To be fully present without phone or camera allowed me new space to enjoy…

Today I realized I want to document my memories AND I want to sometimes just commit things to the memory of my mind and heart…

Sometimes all the tools available to us may actually rob us of the joy of the moment as opposed to enhance it…

And so I am going to trust my memory for today and tomorrow and for many days to come….and if and when my memory fails me, I will have lots of pictures to fall back on!
