She had a few days off between, but Bean has been sick again this weekend, with a fever. She's a tough cookie and an unusually good, cheerful patient, but this time she's clearly felt quite bad, and for several days. Makes a Mama sad to see that, and elevates my need to touch and hold and fuss over her, which she accepts readily. I remember my own Mom and how she always made being sick a special thing for my sister and me, and I always felt especially well-loved and cared about in those times. I'd love my children to remember that about their childhood, as well.


  1. This is such a precious picture! Your love shines through it!

  2. I love how you share your life, inside out, unashamed and open. I'm so glad I stumbled onto your blog and look forward to wandering through your life behind you. God bless.

    P.S. Our 20 year old son has been sick all night and I'm so thankful he still wants his mamma ...

  3. Thanks, ladies! Laura I'm 43 and I still want my Mama, too. My sister says being sick makes kids regress in age. THOSE ARE SOME LONG REGRESSIONS. Hee hee.

  4. ugh.....my comment just got eaten. :) I was saying what a perfect kissy shot is was. It doesn't look contrived. did you hold the camera or do tripod for this?

  5. LOL. I held the camera, Corey. I do have a tripod, but when I get it out, the family tends to scatter like scared chickens. I'd never be able to replicate this shot in a million years.


Your words are worth a thousand pictures.
