SOOC Saturday : To be with the ones we love

Back from a work trip

And R jubilant and thrilled  follows me everywhere

Dragging his DVD, toy or book to the kitchen, living room, outside or wherever else I may be

Happy just to be in the same atmosphere

(I know the feeling .. sometimes I put my noise-free headphones on and read a book while DH watches TV just to be in the same atmosphere

Is it just me and mine that think about our atmosphere, our presence , our auras?

Not needing to speak or touch

Just happy to be with  )

R's ability to shine a 1000 watt spotlight on his mother reminds me of something I read once

To the world you maybe one person ....but to one person you may be the world

I love how we are the moon, the stars, and the rainbow for our children and they are the world to us.
There will never be anything greater than the love we feel for our children.

Great capture - I love how your photos are always so honest and reflective.

Beautifully said! I consider it an honor and a privilege to be Audrey's mother. You just have to look into their adoring eyes if you ever forget that!

Our crew with a mixture of "needs" totally gets the "just happy to be with".

Your photos of R always make me want to reach out and hug him. You show (and write) his precious soul so well.

Isn't it sweet to love and be loved like that.

Who could ask for a nicer coming home? Sometimes, being in the same space without words is extremely powerful and loving. It is a delight to see your son's sweet face, looking at you!

Welcome home! Why is it that it always takes another's perspective to help us remember what is right in front of us? In this case, your words have reminded me that I am, in fact, the center of Nik's known-Universe right now and I should cherish it instead of letting it feel like a weight some days. His need to be with me every waking moment (and then some!!) is, I'm sure, no different than mine to sneak into his room at night to watch him sleeping.

Thank you for the gift today.

Ugh... you are too far away to reach through the screen and hug. (Referring to R and yourself!)

And isn't it just the most joyous feeling - to know that you are loved so much that someone desires most to be in your proximity? What better compliment?

You are a breath of fresh air my friend - gratefulness is a gift.
