I'm taking part in Rethink Church's Lenten 40-day photo challenge. At least, I'm doing it today.
Today is Ash Wednesday, and the prompt is "Who Am I?" I've seen people post pictures of ashes, crosses, brainstorming of things they are, pictures of themselves, all introspective attempts to answer that question.
Those are my and my son's feet. It is hard for me, being a new mother with an almost 11-month-old son, to separate myself from him, physically and otherwise. My identity is wrapped up in him. And though I have lots of other things going on in my life, other things that do tell a story of who I am, I wake a mother and I go to sleep a mother, and those bookends color my days. Especially today.
So who am I? I am "Ma-ma-ma." And even when it drives me insane, I kind of like it.
I figure most of my daily photo responses will include this little guy. He's cute, so it works out well.
