This picture was actually taken a few months back, but considering I am hosting a black and white theme this week I thought it was most appropriate.

We were enjoying a nice crisp day in the gardens at a local historical site, when disaster struck! My eldest daughter fell down…we are still in that stage when the slightest little ding sends our little drama queen into hysterics.

Being that I was a complete tom-boy growing up, this can sometimes drive me absolutely bonkers. But then there are those other times, when I think that there may come a day when I am begging her to talk to me, or to give me a hug…and instead of losing patience I will choose to relish this moment. The fact that my daughter still wants to run to me when she gets hurt, and still wants to talk my ear off every second of the day, and still thinks that a Mother’s kiss can heal most things.

Instead of choosing to roll my eyes before I comfort her, I will choose to close my eyes altogether and breath it in.

That is one of the simple joys of Motherhood, a child’s love.

And to give you a touch of color, finding these in our front yard yesterday gave me such joy…

So for those of you who have Spring Fever like me, fret not. Spring is coming!!! Yippee :)
