Reverb Broads 2011, December 19: Self-Portrait: Post a picture of you that you like, write about yourself, post a video — what do you want your self-portrait to say about you? (courtesy of Kristen at http://kristendomblogs.com)
I’ve reserved my right to remain on the other side of cameras ever since high school, but every once in a while, someone sneaks a picture of me. Most of them are generally appalling. But some make me happy because they reveal something about myself that I hope is true.
Like that I’m a good mom who’ll make a fool of herself to make her kids happy.
Or that I really do have magic in my hands.
I’d like to think pictures can prove that I’m not crazy when I say that my children are Not Normal.
And sometimes, pictures help me believe that I really do have a happy soul, deep down.
But mostly, they just remind me how incredibly lucky I am.
