    I have 4 sisters a step daughter and wife who have at on time or another made similar comments about their body image.
    I have enjoyed many of your pictures you have posted on facebook. I look forward to enjoying many new pictures.
    From my family to your family we feel for your loss.

      Thank you Guy. It was definitely from my heart, the hurt and the encouragement to see the beauty in oneself that all those around you can see. I hope that you gather up those women close to you and get them in some photos with you soon!

    Carla, your words are so beautiful! Thank-you! We lost our beloved Shrek a few years back (suddenly and unexpectedly). I treasure the photos I have of him. I’m one of those people who doesn’t like being in the picture and often I am the one behind the camera. Your words encourage me to “be in the picture” more.

      Lynne, I’m sorry for your loss of your Shrek. I’m also so thankful that you have photos of him! Make those memories! <3

  10. You are SO right about this.. please get in the pictures with your kids. I don’t have near enough images with my parents or grandparents from my youth and I desperately wish I did!

    Thank you Carla. Reading your post today was a timely one. I always say that things come to you at the right time and for a specific reason. We are here only for a short time and it is those photographs that help bring back specific happy memories. I hate being in a photograph and it’s time to change that attitude. ❤️
