Capturing the Moments

Capturing the Moments

Flickr: lepiaf.geo

Part of finding beauty in life is savoring the little moments. A lot of life is stressful, busy, hardwork, often forgettable and quite unremarkable. And, many days are downright painful and difficult.

That is what is so sacred about beautiful moments. They come and go so quickly we can miss their significance.  We might be looking for something bigger and more dramatic and miss the beauty of what was right in front of us all along.

Ever since my children were first born, I have made a habit out of capturing little photos in my mind of the moments I wanted to treasure.

  • Sweet eyelashes fluttering over big blue eyes {remember those eyes so beautiful and innocent}
  • Chubby cheeks covered in sweet potatoes {linger on that baby face to remember it always!}.
  • Hugs by soft dimpled baby arms {don’t forget this feeling!}.
  • Singing soft lullabies to a sleepy boy {remember how precious he is!}
  • Two sisters laughing in the backseat of the car {I love their laughter, don’t forget how it sounded!}.
  • A little brother running to hug big sisters {my heart is full, remember this moment forever!}
  • Kids blowing bubbles on the porch {savor the sweetness, will this be the last time they blow bubbles?}

I had my parents over to our house at Easter. My middle daughter was looking through photos to find ones to put in her senior class slide show. “Remember this mom?,” she’d call over to me. Pretty soon we had all gathered around and savored the memories we had captured in pictures.

We laughed, we cried, we remembered and we shared the little things, the seemingly small moments that could be so easily forgotten if we haven’t captured them in our hearts — and fortunately, in pictures.

Capturing and treasuring those memories is what a joy-filled and beautiful life is about…it isn’t living the perfect life, or having life go exactly like we’d hope all the time, but it is living a life where we recognize what is precious when we see it.

Capturing the Moments

  4. I’d love this for myself, but I think I’d give it to my grandparents so that we could send them surprise pictures of our girls (and the new baby soon to arrive). We live 2,000 miles away and it would be a blessing to keep in touch this way in addition to the usual phone calls and snail mail. :-)

  10. After my little 2 year old and I have an experience (along with her baby brother, of course), we come home and re-create it through art. This week we went to visit an older friend and family. We came home and talked about the fun we had while we made play dough images of the family and then drew them and watercolored them. It’s like a photo but the making of it helps us relive the moment.

    I’m giving away a set of Mother’s Day cards that say something meaningful at my blog this weekend, hope you’ll join me:

  22. Melissa,
    Your post is “especially” special today. I totally understand the importance of capturing those special moments. This week I have all my children and their children home- this doesn’t happen very often in fact the last time we were all in the same place at the same time was around 5 years ago! So lots of pictures are going to be taken and tons of hugs given out.
    Thanks for hosting this series- you are the best.
    Have a wonderful day-

    OH what a great surprise!! Yes I totally agree about capturing the moments. Sometimes I worry about my child becoming annoyed with his mother constantly with a camera in his face. But later i know I will cherish every smile, wink, giggle or CRY!

    Great series!!!

  30. Hi Melissa,

    I haven’t linked this week as I fear my posts are a bit random for the series. In amongst all that randomness, lots of special moments that captured a moment in time that while not so special to others, are priceless to me.

    Thanks for sharing your personal experiences – it must be wonderful to have grown up kids and share those precious memories together!


    Merediths inspiring blog post..Road Trip!

  31. Wow, you put that so perfectly into words! I love decorating…I love all things regarding design. I am a real estate agents/stager who gave up her job and is now home with little ones again. I started blogging and my whole blog has turned into finding the ‘joy at home.’ Some days are down right dreary but even the dull days are filled with little glimpses of sunshine when you stop and soak up the subtle sweet moments of childhood! Thanks for todays post, enjoy your weekend!

  34. This is a fantastic giveaway…it would be wonderful to win and fill with “Beautiful Life” pictures!! I am also working on a graduation slide-show. (The final one of three, which makes it a bit more bittersweet than the first two. Looking through our pictures has been great fun.)
    I’m hoping to get a post up and link with your Mr. Linky.

    I wrote a post yesterday about the beauty of my dirty little two year old boy. I, unfortunately, did not have a camera on hand; so, hopefully I did a good job describing him.

  38. Julie York says

    Love your blog!!! I too would enjoy the Kodak digital picture frame. We purchased one to give as a Christmas gift for my husband’s mom. It was so much fun to upload the pictures, but in the end it was HARD to give it away. I really wanted to put it in my OWN living room!!
    grace and peace,

  39. These Kodak digital frames really are great. We gave one to my grandmother for her birthday and she LOVES it. She invites people into her room at the retirement home to watch the little slideshows on them of her family. :-)

    Thanks for hosting this fun party. Have a wonderful weekend!!

    Julia @ Hooked on Housess inspiring blog post..Hooked on Fridays: Beach Cottage Love

  40. I agree whole heartily with you..every since my son was born I have made sure to stop and take in every little moment. Taking pictures of all the little things. I’m sure some people wouldn’t understand the pictures or think they were good but all of these pictures will remind me one day of the precious little baby I was blessed with :)
    I would love a digital frame so that the thousands of pictures could be viewed everyday!

  41. That is such a nice digital pic frame!! I’d love to take my son out (5) and take pics with him for the frame.

    You are so right…capturing and treasuring moments with our children (even if they are adults!) is what makes our lives beautiful! Nothing gives me greater joy than spending time with my daughter and her husband and my son! The time just goes too fast from when we can hold their little feet in our hands and when we walk with them as they give their hand and heart to another! What joy!

  79. I am from a family of 80 immediate relatives, so this frame is exactly what I need. I love to look at pictures “to remember”. It just takes so long with this big family. Love the picture of the baby’s feet. They don’t stay that small very long.

  124. I have been doing Project 365 this year, trying to take at least one photo each day. I have missed a few days but I haven’t let that stop me. I am so glad for all the little moments I am catching. I have the worst memory so I know I need to capture the little things now before I forget.

    Lindsays inspiring blog re mi

  125. What an amazing prize! With family so spread out we have been trying to take more pictures of epsilon to share on flickr, I didn’t realize frames could take your photos strait from flickr!

  126. Oh, how I wish my boys were still little. I am certain that grandchildren are our reward for surviving parenting our own children because in the moment so many precious memories seem mundane. One look at those chubby baby feet takes me back to a time that seems like a hundred years ago…a mere 18 years is all it was.

  127. ooh, love it! been saving for one for ages, my parents are on the other side of the world and it’d be great for sharing grandbaby pix….

  128. How awesome! I totally need one of those, especially now that I have a baby nephew and sweet toddler niece!!!

  131. I would LOVE to win this beautiful prize. My husband has been wanting one for the past 2 years. We live 6,000 miles away from family (husband is in the Navy), so to have everyone’s picture rotating on this frame would make it feel more like home. Thank you!!

  132. What a great giveaway! I love to take and display photos. And I love your inspiring blog! Thanks!

  133. I have been thinking a lot about a “beautiful life” for the last two weeks or so. I added candles to my bathroom and a silverplate compote to hold handmade soaps. I added a candle to my bedside table. I light it each night, even though my hubby works out of town during the week. It adds calm and beauty to my alone time before bed. *sigh* Little things!

  134. Wow! What a great giveaway!!! Count me in!!!

    Love your blog,

  159. Isn’t is amazing how our perspective changes when we are watching for these precious moments?
    The night before last I hears some little giggles in the kids bedroom. We had been cleaning it out and had one of those big leaf canopies from IKEA on the floor. The kids found a way to prop it up and made a little bed under it. It was so cute to see these little toes poking out the end… and when I looked inside, they had little pillows and blankets under there. They were facing the mirror and just giggling at their new-found space. I love how the simple things make them giddy! It’s moments like these that I want to remember… forever…

  160. What a lovely post! Throw my name in the hat too please.

  177. I am so bad about printing anything since we went digital. My kids relate to pics on a computer screen rather than in a photo album. This frame would be great!!

  178. You are so right. It’s the little things that really do seem to mean the most. I realize this more & more as I get older. It’s not the costly things, but the simple gestures, family time, & daily rituals that seem to mean the most. Nothing brings as much joy as scouring through old photos, especially those of your children.
    By luck I happened upon your blog today. So glad I did.

  220. I happened to have the opportunity to capture a very special moment this week. My husband suggested we visit my 90 year old grandma on the Easter weekend so on Monday we drove the two hours with our eight year old and four year old. Our eight year old is now taller than his Great Grandma (to his delight). Lots of photos were taken of a very proud boy standing tall next to his Great-Grandma and a very shy little boy trying to be careful around his fragile Great-Grandma. Priceless!

  221. Love those ten little toes…
    Every night before I go to sleep…I play a slide show in my mind of the ones I love…family is everything…the littlest moments in time can make the biggest memories. I am blessed.

  252. I took my 5 year old son for our first frolic of the year in the sand and surf of the beach yesterday. As I was snapping picture after picture, it struck me that I am swiftly approaching the time when playing in the sand, searching for shells and laughing at the water lapping at our feet won’t interest him anymore. So I snapped a few more pictures to bring back these memories when that day comes.
