Beautifully Pitiful

Abby received a digital camera for Christmas.

She has barely set it down. She is her mother’s daughter.

As I was reviewing some of her shots, I came across this one.

It’s a self-portrait.

Why was she crying? Who knows.

But I love that she captured it on film.

Does admitting that knock me out of the running for mom of the year?

  1. Who cares about mom of the year. I think this is indescribably beautiful. The emotion is so real. She took her picture because no one else would sympathize with her at that moment for probably a very miniscule reason and she found a way to express that to the cosmos. This is an award winning photo. I LOVE it!…. and so will she…when she’s 30.

  2. You are mom of the year, every year, to Abby.
    Sad Abby. She needs a hug.

  3. HADN’T SEEN THIS TILL JUST NOW ON ONE OF OUR SLEEPLESS NIGHTS. ABBY APPEARS TO BE REALLY IN PAIN FOR AT LEAST THE MOMENT. BUT KNOWING ABBY, I’M SURE IT DIDN’T LAST LONG. MOMMY OR DADDY FIXED IN A MOMENT. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL SHOT, AND TO ME IT REPRESENTS HER INNOCENCE AND DEEP FEELINGS AT THAT VERY MOMENT.

  4. In my book it MAKES you mom of the year.
