Friday morning I found some treasure in Anna’s room. I’ve been looking for her glasses ever since the accident. I have no idea where they could possibly be. She was always so good at putting them in their case on my dresser…the case and the glasses are no where to be found. In the attempt to find them I decided to search the countless bags, purses and small containers that she loved to fill with everything but the kitchen sink. When she was playing babies, which she did daily, she would carry these bags around with her and stuff them with lots of randomness. Going through them now is very healing because I can only imagine what she was thinking as she filled these bags during her play. I am finding everything but the glasses.
While on this search I found her camera, the one she took pictures and video with. Yes, as seen on Facebook last week, she loved to hijack my phone and take videos of her friends and sister; but this little camera was with her all the time. She took pictures and videos of her friends and her siblings. The camera has a feature where you can add things to the pictures or distort the images. Some of them are really funny, Anna’s perfect little face with really big teeth or my face with a giant nose. I remember laughing at all the images she created while on our trip to Orcas Island this summer.
