My little schpeal on Mormon.org made it's debut yesterday.
My kids have been on me like bees to honey asking incessantly when it will be up, so man alive were they ever excited.
We sat and watched it together yesterday afternoon...their hearts soaring with glee (even when they weren't in it as much as they hoped) while mine sunk...oh boy I don't like to watch myself on video.
But I have to admit they did a pretty darn good job. I am amazed that they could take that whole day of footage back in November and shrink it down into those couple minutes and make semblance of all my mumbo jumbo blabbering.
It's interesting because when they first contacted me to do this thing they said they wanted to concentrate specifically on motherhood. They had read my blog and they wanted to show our family motto and the quotes on our chalkboard and our family dinners. They also wanted to touch on Lucy's story and how we have to make conscientious decisions about how we will spend our time as mothers to make our motherhood deliberate and fulfilling.
But when you watch it you'll wonder where in the world all that jazz went because it didn't quite make the cut. It's more a blog/photography thing. Which, by the way, I am incredibly honored by.
I just hope people will take a close look at that picture of our family at the end, because that is where the important stuff is. It's these six people I live with who I adore.
Anyway, click here to see the video.
