In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture which means LOVE to you! – Weekly Photo Challenge
This is one of my favorite photos of the three of us. It was taken recently on an Indian Summer day where we got to go out and enjoy a day at the park. It’s hard to find a good photo of all three of us smiling at the same time. Four year olds don’t always understand sincere smiles.
This picture reminds me of the love the three of us share. We spent the better part of a week at Christmas time at home, together, with nowhere to go. Just playing board games, watching movies, cuddling together. There was never a moment where any of us felt we couldn’t wait for the week to be up. Or wish that we had somewhere to go to get away from each other.
My daughter loves for all of us to be together. She tells me every day how her dream the night before was that all three of us could be together forever. When one of us have to go to work my daughter always wants us to call and see if it’s going to be busy in case they don’t need us and we can stay home. How I wish work worked that way!
I honestly think that all three of us would be perfectly happy to be able to spend every waking moment together. Obviously, as my daughter gets older, that dream may change. She currently says she is never leaving us, even when she gets married. She says her husband will have to live with us or she will buy the house next door. No clue on where the person who currently lives there will go but I am sure she has it all planned out.
She will probably go through that stay all children go through where they count down the days till they can get away. But hopefully it will be just that, a phase that will quickly pass.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. The above picture is one I look at and when I see it the first thing that comes to mind is what a loving family. And in this case the saying is true!
