I love photographs. They represent moments in time, ranging from silly to significant. Possessing the power to take us back, these images flood our minds with a cascade of thoughts and memories.
That is true of this photo. Pictured are the three amazing individuals who call me mom. As a surprise for my 50th birthday, they secretly learned my favorite James Taylor song, Like Everyone She Knows. The picture was taken right after their living room performance, a moment which begged to be captured.
My husband introduced me to the song when we were dating, over twenty-five years ago. There was an immediate connection, and I continue to listen often. The line “hold tight to your heart’s desire” always seems to be speaking directly to my soul.
Now I not only have memories connected to the song, I also have this precious photograph. A reminder of my sweet kids and their thoughtful gift.
A perfect moment in time…
