Summer memories... when you have no idea...

There were times when I knew about every breath, every move of my children - I woke up when they turned over in their little beds in the next room, I chased the nightmares out of the house, I kissed the pain away, I cured all diseases and made up stories about bad germs and good medicine where there are little helpers hidden, who help fight the bad flu:)).. I sang with them, I played with them,I read dozens of books with them, I knew what they thought, I was there when they explored the world, night and day…

Today I don´t even know when they shoot me:)

Photos taken by my daughter during our vacations in Bavaria last year.

      So well described and appropriate photos to match. Letting go was/is the hardest thing for me. I hope I'm getting better at it.

      But that is a gift in itself my friend, when they are noticing you when you least expect it...believe me, I can truly relate to your feelings. ;))) Let them snap away and years from now, you will go through another period of closeness when they are sharing their photos with you and all of you can share stories of those days together :))
