If your life is anything like mine, it's rushing by and lost in it are the little details. Oh, I may see the big picture and remember that quite well, but what about those little things that made up that big picture?
You see, there's this great big cherry tree in our front yard and when it blooms, it's covered in pink, puffy blossoms. The breeze blows, petals fly and our yard becomes a pink-petal wonderland.
It made me start thinking...I admire that big tree and it's beautiful blossoms, but what about the tiny petals? Those little petals are what make it beautiful, yet they are so easily forgotten as they float down to the grass and are trodden underfoot.
It's like this picture. All of my beautiful babies together....but it's the big picture. What about the details behind it?
What about when big sister curled up her legs to sit like and indian and baby sister's feet rested on her, tickling with her tiny toes.
Or when two proud big brothers decided to simultaneously smooch their little sister...we always photograph that.
But what about when the baby, in answer to those kisses, turns up her little birdmouth trying to find a cheek to slobber and give a smooch of her own?
Or when a few seconds later one of those big brothers begins to gently touch her sweet toes and then her little hand reaches out and grabs his arm.It's those beautiful, yet easily passed over details that are so often missed in the big picture.
