I Heart Faces- "Celebrating Mom"

This weeks theme for I Heart Faces is celebrating mom.  This is a picture I took from a recent photoshoot that I thought of right away when I saw what the theme was this week.  A mom and a daughter snuggling close.  It's also a wonderful reminder that being a mom isn't about giving birth, but giving yourself.  Being a mom goes so much deeper than just giving birth to babies, but giving yourself to a baby, and a child as they grow.  It's about the sacrifices that you make every day to ensure the safety and wellbeing of a child.  It's about giving of yourself to show this child that they are special to God, and that they are special to you.  Being a mom gives us the opportunities to share God and life with another human being in the hopes that the special bond between us will lead them to be an adult who follows after the dreams that God has given them!  What an awesome and special responsibility! 

Go on over to I Heart Faces to see more special mom pictures!
