The August Break 2011: Pic 5

Adisenne LOVES to take pictures with my phone. 
Usually they look something like this:

NOT the official August Break Pic, btw! ;)

Blur. Blur blur blur.

Today she asked if she could take a picture of me
 because, as she put it, she "loves me."

And lately, when I've been telling her I love her,
she asks me" Do you love YOU too, mama?"

She reminds me to love myself.
I think if I try to imagine myself through her eyes,
it's impossible not to,
because she is always so sweet to me,
giving me flowers or heart-shaped leaves
as tokens of her affection.

This picture of me is one she took.
So I decided to play around with it, and have it be
my pic of the day so I can remember that sweet lesson from her.

Reminding me that I am worth loving, too.

Thank you, Addie, for loving me.
