"Mom?" Says Chance, "Can I take a picture of you?"
"Sigh, Oh, I guess" Says I
As I reluctantly hand him the camera, knowing full well that I have neglected to exercise, shower and dress yet because I've been, What? Blogging.

He snapped a nice little picture and then proceeded to tell me to wait a minute while he took another.

And another

and another as I say "Chance, GIVE ME THAT CAMERA"

So, thinking about potential lately, and about how important it is to see potential in everybody and everything. I looked at these pictures Chance took. Despite the fact that I'm in a sweatshirt, jeans, no makeup, my hair not done I can still see that I could potentially be a model, I mean, look at those poses. Oh sure, they may be standard poses but I can still see potential. Just a little? Well, O.K. then look at the potential of the 4 year old photographer. He's just shooting pictures left and right and he's actually capturing the poses. Even the last one as I reach for the camera. I mean that's potential, right? O.K. O.K. Look at the couch I can see potential written all over that red floral pattern. At least it gives the walls some potential. color wise anyway. Or, I could potentially, get new couches. Right?

What's the potential Here?

You know, I feel really bad for people that don't have the ability, desire, understanding or love of the whole concept of potential. This entire world(existence) was created on that very principle. That's why we're here, to potentially return to the presence of a loving Father, with the potential to become as He is. This year I am going to start looking for potential. Not just in people but in everything. I believe that, potentially, It could lead to a more positive me. ;)

Just the other day while my hubby was gone for 4 days I told him I missed the potential.....The potential that if he were home, we might actually get some private time together. Well at least there is potential in my dreams.

Cathy: I thought the attire was great, couldn't see any of what you were worried about...Oh by the way, leave the a few more years everybody else will want to know where you got it.
