Sunday Still Life is an attempt to capture the beauty and the depth of busy days in a slow and simple way. If you feel inspired, join Erin, here. Keep it slow. Keep it simple.
She pads into the kitchen at the sound of the radio playing a sweet slow song. Her arms lift up as she looks at me expectantly. I gladly pick her up and we sway for a few beats until I hear the sound of her soft snores in my ear.
oh cole. this brought tears to my eyes.
your sweet girl. your photo. your words. SO beautiful.
happy sunday to you.
I do not think there is anything in the world as wonderful as holding a sleeping child (except giving birth to a child). The trust he/she is giving you. The responsibility of not letting that trust down. The love that seeps through every pore of you. I watched my husband carry (separately of course) two sleeping grandchildren and put them to bed. Beautiful. And when I rock the Irish lass (their sister) to sleep, I feel so rich and blessed.
This is a beautiful photo of an awesome moment.
beautiful photo and beautiful words, Cole.
