This Surprising and Beautiful Mom Realization Happened While Taking Prom Pictures
(Inside: Taking prom pictures of my son unleashed this beautiful realization that filled my heart all the way up and make me feel lucky…)
While taking prom pictures of my son, an amazing (and surprising) mom realization unfolded.
However, in snapping photos for prom, my feelings changed.
The couple’s arms around each other.
And between the flashes, I realized something..
I wished for them with every ounce of my heart to enjoy the evening. Let go of the high school stress and relish being young.
And enjoying seeing who they’re becoming.
You will love these reminders to stop, look around, and see how beautiful your ordinary is.
