A Brightside in My Life

My oldest daughter Sarah just had a birthday. I am so thankful to God for the gift of her. She was born just in time to be my first Mother’s Day present. I am very proud of her and the person she has become. She loves the Lord and is seeking to grow in her faith. He has gifted her with wonderful creative talent. She has worked hard and has gotten an Associate’s Degree in Visual Communications and her Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Art with an emphasis in photography. She can find and capture beauty in places where we would never imagine. You have to see her work to understand. You can start by looking at her blog at thebrightsidestudio, then her website, Etsy shop and Flickr site. She loves to find, capture and enjoy simple pleasures. Sarah is an inspiration to me and an encouragement to appreciate life and many blessings. It is awesome how God makes each of us and what we can do for each other. I was reminded of the day she was born. We were in a nice birthing room with lots of big windows. It was a cloudy day. Just after she was born the sun came out and she squinted at the brightness. Her late Grandma Moore affectionately called her “My Sunshine”. Now isn’t it amazing how things turn out. I love her so much and pray that she will have many opportunities to use her talents.
