Through My Child's Eyes

W went for a hike down the bank today with his camera.  He sent me this picture when he returned.  I love getting to see things through the eyes of my boys.  When my boys were little I came across this quote:

A mother focuses the lens through which her children view life.

I've always found that to be quite true and wonderful - and it can also feel like a beautiful, huge responsibility at times too- and now I find it so interesting to have a chance to view things through their lens...literally too.

Such a wonderful quote, and it makes me realize how much we mamas do and how we set the course for their creativity and learning and growth. We can be such a positive influence and a compass of sorts to help them find their paths. This has greatly inspired me this morning...thank you Heather.

I love seeing this photo, and the way the yellow daisy pops is fantastic. I think I know this flower from drives through your side of the earth before, they dot the highways hill-sides where it is a bit rocky and disturbed, right?

Lovely! Hope you're all settled in... Your boys seem like total sweethearts. And your joy is evident. How blessed.

Cheers!
