Why I don't take pictures

For years I have said that I don't take pictures because it is better to remember it in your mind. Over the years I have found that I embellish a lot of my memories. That's ok - but I have started to feel guilty about not taking more pictures of special events and the kids. Take the IMB appointment service - I hold tight to that memory at the same time I will embellish the memory over the years. In 20 years, I will be sharing about the time that I spoke at the Texas Southern Baptist State Convention at First Church Houston. I won't remember the 103 other missionaries that shared and that we were only allowed to share 60 words. In my mind I I will remember that I was the keynote speaker.
As I get ready to go to Costa Rica, my plan is to take more pictures for the purpose of sharing what we are doing. But don't get upset if my story is different than the picture!
