If you’re a regular reader, you know I’m a fan of Kelle Hampton’s blog, Enjoying the Small Things. She was the photographer who did pictures for Step 2′s Everybody Plays! Campaign. She’s a photographer. She’s a mom. She lives in sunny Florida. What’s not to love?
The post on her blog today is more or less a perfect summation of what has been rolling around my own head this morning and yesterday. If you read Yahoo! News, I am sure you saw Apollo’s picture and the article about our recent TSA experience. Many people were supportive, but many insisted I did something wrong: I didn’t bring a letter from my doctor (tried that last time,they wouldn’t read it), I didn’t call ahead (did that last time, it didn’t help), I should have shipped his formula to our destination (I only took a day’s supply on the plane with me, the rest was checked. I *can’t* travel without food for my 3 year old!), I have too many children and that’s why I missed my flight (huh?), I am personally responsible for global climate change (sorry about that).
I know from experience that wide exposure brings criticism. And I’m okay with that in general. You can’t please everyone.
So go out and celebrate today. Tell someone thank you (and thank YOU, dear friends, for the wonderful “savor” comments yesterday. Each one brought a smile my face). Tell someone you love them. Join Happfiy. Have a second cup of coffee.
And if you have a moment, pop by and leave a comment here.
