In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought I would post one of my favorite photos of the Spicka Chicks. Shot nearly five years ago, I love is how this picture captured the “Who” of them before they came to “Be” them.
Salem, the oldest, is the strong, not so silent type. Her face is full of thought and her gaze on others and life is straight forward. Today, we see this is growing more and more. Charis, the youngest, here is just beginning to “strike a pose.” But now we know that she is full of color, sass and joy.
I love that God knows them and what they need more than I ever can. I love that God loves being Our Father and that we all get to journey together for a season.
If I had to pick one of the 1000 pictures I have taken over the last fourteen years of this amazing madhouse journey of motherhood, this one stops my heart every time. I love my girls. I love being their mom. And, I am so thankful that God heard my cries and gave me children against all odds.
