The beauty of our blood sweat and tears stand before us as we instantly replay the countless days of relentless labor. The mind swiftly wraps a memory of tears generated by words of love, hate and betrayal. We use these words to motivate ourselves to continue to build! Hour by hour, day by day then year by year........The bumps and bruises on our physical reminds us of the ups and downs of the uncertainty that was before us. Yet, we continued to build! At last, as we take a deep breath and wipe the sweat from our face. The foundation!
Throughout our lives we build families. These are the people that we expect to be the closest to, however, life experiences shows us differently. The fantastic part through it all, with a strong "foundation" we're able to weather the storm.
During this in home family shoot, I was met with laughter and joy! Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Rankin for the opportunity to work with you and your family. Mr. Rankin, your story is truly inspiring and left me with what I'm sure to be a lifelong lesson "perseverance".
