Life with Waves

Imagining it flow back and fourth.

Imagining it crash or gently fall.

Imagining life compared to the water.

Imagine if we could just have it all.

A Big Bang or the Quiet collide.

Life can definitely give either.

So take the wheel and adjust your sail so you can guide yourself through the water.

As I go back and reminisce on when my daughter, Gracie was just about to turn one years old.

This photo came across the memories and it was her one year photo shoot I did at Diamond Lake WA.

Now, when I took this photo I merely was thinking how adorable and chunky she looked. When I look at it now I still see that but, I also simply see a little human gazing into the water.

Her thoughts? I have no idea.

Could she be thinking of simply swimming?

Could she be watching the waves as they slowly come to the shore and fall quietly?

Possibly she is thinking deeper than we will ever know or understand when they are this young.

Either way, this photo has become so much more beautiful to me than it even was before.

I now see something in this photo that allowed me to see some clarity almost 2 years later.

This photo inspired me to write what I wrote.

Have you ever pictured your feelings like a pulse? (Like waves) The up and down, up and down.

That, for some reason clicks with me in a way to write what I did.

It’s up to us when we want to smooth things out in life, (water) create peace in our environments and we allow what we want. It’s our choice.

We can not change the size of the waves or how the water falls. But, we can learn to ride and we can learn to get back up. Becoming stronger swimmers.

God gave us everything we need to succeed in this life with what we want.

Don’t let a hard crash keep you from all the gentle but, life-changing falls you will get to experience and don’t be afraid of the hard crashes. They will shape us all in the end because, most hard lessons do.

Embrace your journey and LIVE your life the way YOU intend to WANT to live.

Thank you.

Pictures and more Pictures. I know that when I see an appealing photo with bright colors or an organized list of options really tugs me in. I enjoy reading things that are easy to the eye, friendly to the in a nutshell theory and visual stimulation. Over time being a mom I have come to the terms that my child will absolutely not like everything I put in front of her. Even if its easy to the eye, simple for her to figure out and stimulating to her mouth for flavor. I have run into so many trials in error with food and what my daughter would eat over the time span. I mean I was learning too!

So I thought why not share what I have come across over my time span as a mom. Here I am going to share some visual pictures and also some links here and there for you to click on to take you on a simple but fun adventure for Baby foods. I am going to do my best to just showcase things that came easily to me personally and some things that I know worked for fellow moms.

I love that it starts @ 4 months. My daughter started at 4 Months as well. I know a lot of people wait until 6 months and it is recommended. Talk to your pediatrician always before trying something new and your unsure.
