Living Arrows 1/52

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

I was getting a bit lax with my camera towards the end of 2013 and I need to get it out more and so I was excited to see that I heart Snapping was hosting a photo a week series and decided I would join in.  I love the passage by Kahlil Gibran, from which the Living Arrows series is inspired.  I quoted just one line of it, but the whole passage is so lovely and really sums up parenthood.

Nate // This little guy is not well today.  He woke up and within minutes he was crying inconsolably.  He ate some breakfast and then came and sat on my knee as we snuggled in the living room in front of the tv.  Then he puked.  A LOT.  It’s a blankets and sofa kind of day for my littlest dude now.

Ollie // When Ollie got home from school I didn’t have just one sicky boy…. I had two.   It was Ollie’s first day back at school today, but on coming home, his cough and breathing were so bad we took him to the Dr.  He has a chest infection.  He climbed onto the sofa when we got home, cuddled in a blanket and began to play Minecraft.
