In that womb was many many gifts embedded in my heart and soul that are still being unveiled.
Gifs of love, courage, patience and understanding.
Gifts that took a very very long time to recognize.
My gifts of talent, seeing the unseeing and the courage to create came from my momma.
My momma was the 1st person to put a camera in my hand.
She taught me how to use the view finder and point and shoot, with that I am a great photographer today.
She gave me the basic tools that developed into a passion.
A passion that I formed into my own photography business.
She gave nothing but love to both me and my brother.
I watched my momma on bended knees in prayer with my, father by her side for me personally and our family.
With that today I am a wife and mother of my own, hoping to give my family the love and care that she gave us.
Growing up in my parents home was not always the best.
Being that I was a hard headed, know it all teenager.
But even with the struggles of trying to raise me, my mother freely allowed me to experiment in my room with painting and decorating. I wasn't the kind that wanted to cover my walls with posters of kids that I saw on TV, "NO" I wanted to paint and move my furniture around. I even made one wall from ceiling to floor full of hand bags and purses that I collected over the years. My inner passion for design spread out into the kitchen where I instructed my father and grandfather how to lay the black and white tile into a design, a design that stayed on our floor for years! My momma even had faith and heart in me to lay wood floors in the living room, which I failed miserably.
I never realize how much I actually look like my momma until I look at this picture.
I never realized how much talent my momma nested in me until I wrote this post.
My momma is a great talent herself.
She is a seamstress and a GREAT one at that!
So let me BRAG!
