What do you see?

The beautiful woman in this photo is my baby sister on her wedding day. I love this photo of her. I don't know how I was lucky enough to take this photo with all that was going on at that moment. It is literally moments before she walked down the aisle to marry her best friend.

Every time I see this photo I see all the questions of on her face. I remember the day that we went to the doctor's office and my Mom found out that she was pregnant. I remember driving down the road and my parent's cars passing each other in slow motion, their eyes connecting and speaking volumes with just one look for my Mom to say "Yes, I am pregnant." Going to my aunt's house when my Mom went into labor and sitting on her couch crying because I was nervous and scared.
The first time my middle sister and I got mad at my Mom because she was being "mean" and made Krisa cry because it was her nap time. The time I was playing with Krisa by throwing her in the air and she threw up in my mouth (disgusting!!!). Going to countless gymnastic meets for my baby sister who had the talents of an Olympic level gymnast. Then going to high school and MSU football games as she cheered her teams to victory.
All those moments had led her to the moment in this photo. That is what life is all about isn't it... choices. Good and bad. Happy and sad.
I'm glad that I get to share them with my family.
