On a Lazy Sunday

On this lazy and peaceful afternoon while we relaxed on my bed enjoying an unrushed moment, soft afternoon light witnessed gentle smiles and shared tenderness, our laughter tickled the air, sweet kisses brushed my cheeks and small hands found mine to nest in. But it was more than even that, it was seeing true smiles from the kids revealing their joy in this moment spent together, a moment of love affirmed. Love is everchanging, either growing or diminishing, requiring nurturing in order to thrive. As such, love is a living thing, it feels, it hurts, it grows, it blossoms as we choose to feed it, and in turn fills one of our emotional survival needs as human beings. It is in such pure moments of love as these that their young confidences are fortified and foundations of security are set, even if by a millimeter at a time. We all need more moments like these, putting aside our selfish distractions just to be together. Time given is the easiest and best way we can give love selflessly. As for me, I definitely need these moments to be build me up as well. Their joy seeps into me, scattering my worries. I need this as much as they do.

I determined this year to get in the photos with my kids more, the ones with me in it are taken by my six-year-old son and my nine-year-old niece. I think they did an amazing job, this getting in the photos thing will have more than one good outcome.
