I'm a little late posting my photo for this past month's challenge. The challenge was to do a self portrait. It couldn't be of yourself, however, but of an object that symbolizes who you are. It took me a while to figure out what object to use, and this is what I came up with:
This is my front door. I feel that this symbolizes so much of who I am. As a stay-at-home-mom, my life revolves around what is on the other side of this door. My family. Inside this door rest all my hopes and dreams. My dreams are to raise my boys to be the men that God wants them to be, and my hopes are that I can be the mother that they need to become wonderful men.
Through this door I strive to make my home a sanctuary where each member of our family can recharge weary spirits after being on the outside of the door all day. The door, much like myself, can provide some shelter from the harsh conditions outside.
