With Mothers Day I was thinking about what kind of gifts a mother could want..other than a good night sleep. Then I saw my friends Instagram post ( @jetsetmama) this morning about her baby daughter and it moved me to tears.
Speaking of sensing her child, although still a baby already in the process of leaving her. At the end in reference to her daughter she says
” Because through it all I will never forget, her tiny body, her tiny face, her smell, and the way it made me feel. And one day when I am old and my body unable to heal,
She will hold me.
And have her face pressed to mine.
And this big whole life,
was but a beautiful moment in time. ”
Claire is certainly a clever girl when it comes to writing and expressing emotions and after I brushed away the tears.. I thought its really those memories of moments in time that we can hold onto the most.
So I believe that the best present you can give your mum or yourself is to capture it all and not to forget to include yourself in it too.
And on that note I want to share with you some family pics we had done last year in the fields outside Villa Nanas , our villa in Canggu Bali.
At the time hubby wasn’t keen and it was so hard to get Cam to do anything but I remember saying to him that it might seem cheesy now but I bet in a year or so we will look back and remember those times we spent in our little house in the rice fields and be glad we had these photos taken.
We are due to go back next month and you know what..I’m already glad.
Happy Mothers Day…
And its not all play..I do get some work done while I’m there..ok I know you don’t believe me. If you are headed to Canggu you might want to stay at our place. It’s on AirBNB here.
Or if you are interested to have some family portraits taken I can put you in contact with Rowe Timson who took ours.
