Early Friday morning, although a chill was back in the air, we bundled up and heading out for our morning walk. Both the children have taken a great liking to our little hikes after breakfast, waking up with the sun and birds, getting to run and play in trails often very free and uncrowded.
This time, we went back to one of our favorite spots. I’ve shown you this place a few times here and here. It truly is a magical place. Every time we go back, every season brings us new understanding and wonder. This year, we made it there as the trillium were starting to bloom. We didn’t see many blooms, but the carpets of leaves unfurling are promising a grand display in a few days. I can assure you we will be going back!
As I was slowly walking along the trails, snapping pictures, a kind older gentleman stopped and asked me, smiling knowingly : “You are probably not very often on the other side of that camera are you?” Looking at my beautiful babies climbing on stumps and smelling flowers, I looked back and giggled. “Give me your camera for a minute”, he said, “it’s almost Mother’s Day, I think you should be in at least one picture.”
I can’t remember that last time I was in a picture with both my little angels.
Happy Mother’s Day to all my amazing mamas out there!
May you find kindness and love from everyone around you. You deserve it!
