Mother’s Day here in Germany will take place in May, but I am very happy to join in this week’s Gallery with an inspiring “Mother Love” theme.
I am not perfect, and neither are my children. We share wonderful times together but also have massive clashes, especially with First Daughter now having entered the “dreaded teenager phase” and Second Daughter not far behind. As I said in my “Education – More Than School” post, we do a lot of travelling together but we also have had – and still will, no doubt – to go through some extremely difficult and painful events.
What I do hope they will remember and cherish in their adulthood, though, is these little snippets of our lives, these magical moments when being together just feels right, in your heart, gut and head.
I have selected a few examples:
Carving pumpkins into Jack O’ Lanterns for Halloween.
Still doing it every year and still as much fun.
We have an incredible choice of biscuit forms and
use an equally impressive amount of flour!
Playing the role of guinea pigs for a photographer friend.
A wonderful sunny afternoon full of laughter.
I love my daughters with all my heart and do my best to make sure they get this feeling every day.
