Keeping this Moment

Don’t you ever wish you could capture a moment forever? I suppose that is what pictures are for, and pictures do a great deal for bringing back memories. But sometimes I wish you could capture moments in a bottle.

And pop the top open when you splash your face in the happiness of that day, that moment in time once again.

Unphased by the many layers of mud his little body wore that day.

And the look of complete and utter happiness in this puddle of mud from yesterday’s rain.

This little boy is growing up, and it’s moments like these I never want to forget.

Dear iPhone, your rock my world. You help me capture little moments like this when the big camera is zipped away in the camera bag, or too large to handle when dodging puddles and mud splotches from a sweet, muddy child.

Happy Sunday friends.

    A while back I wrote about how much I would have loved to have the technology of today when Bailey was alive. We had one small throw-away camera at the hospital. I can hardly fathom the number of pictures we would have today had we all had the camera phones we have today. Rocks my world with sadness over those lost memories.

    Oh yes, how I wish we could bottle the moments and “splash them on our faces” as you said. So thankful for the pics and videos we have of Marcellus, but it’s not the same as being there in that moment.

    LOVE the mud pic!

    Pictures can help you cherish the world you always wished to live in. I lived in another city for two years and I loved being there. However, because of some circumstances I could not live there and now whenever I wish to relive that part of my life I go through the pics that I had taken there. Thanks to my Sony Cam:-)

    Isn’t the iPhone great? I own a iPod Touch which has many of the same features. Defiantly a memory saver although I hardly use it for that. I too wish those special memories could be kept in a jar for an special moment to relive them again. I hope you can capture many more wonderful pictures.
