It's Wednesday night and there is still a lot of activity going on around our home. The TV is working hard playing that familiar tune to 'Good Luck Charlie'. Isabella is reading a story to her daddy, pausing as she tries to read an unfamiliar word 'fascinating'. Outside, the sprinkler hits the window from time to time reminding me of the soothing sound of rain. Sounds so familiar and comforting.
Today Isabella discovered an old video recorder and together with her brothers we watched videos of years past. Images of stumbling little babies, uttering words only a mom can understand.
Big brown eyes looking into the lens of a machine that without their knowledge would capture their tiny images, clumsy baby movements and babbling words turning them into treasures for the future.
It made me once again realize how much I enjoy this job of motherhood. How blessed I have been through this journey and how priviledged my husband and I are, to be allowed to raised these little ones.
As I watched, I noticed my husband and my features still young and child like. Our voices naive and patient. Young parents outnumbered by three little ones, not knowing what to do, yet instinctively doing it as well as we could.
One comforting while the other disciplines, one disciplining while the other comforts. One playing while the other works, one working while the other plays. But both loving all the time. We unlocked some beautiful memories today and hope to continue this journey making more.
Have a beautiful day.
As you may have noticed, I've been enamoured with Queen Anne's lace for a while now and seeing them along the roads waving to the rhythm of the wind makes me smile.
How can such a beautiful plant with such a beautiful name be called a 'weed'? I'm preparing a neat photography tutorial for you that I hope you will love, the clue is within the picture above ;)
