Living Arrows

Living Arrows 19/52

This photo was taken last Monday, I love a similar photo we have from our recent holiday. This day was different. We wanted one last day of normal. And because they are awesome they seemingly knew, they are the most sensitive of children, knowing mummy’s emotional humpbacks, and for this they just seemed to know.

The beauty of freedom.

The following day we waited their return from school to let them know, their nana had passed away. 

And so, the purpose of Living Arrows is reinforced. 

You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.”

This is the only photo I can find with all three in their Nana’s company.

It was the few weeks she lived with us waiting to move into her flat. The little people couldn’t wait to eat breakfast with her each morning.

She set her son out into the world, so we can celebrate our children, and she can celebrate all she created.
