! birthday candles ! for sacred sunday
I joined sacred sunday a little while ago but haven't been regularly finding anything sacred for Sunday...... I really do try to find the sacredness in my life but sometimes I get distracted with being busy... I am going to try to slow down more and find sacredness in my life - just this past week I have been seeing little things that remind me of the sacred sunday commitment and I thought what could be better than some birthday candles for this week, seeing as it is my birthday month...
these candles above, are ones that I have used on my childrens birthday cakes.... the little bear is Sophie's from her first birthday and the pink one that is peeking out on the left is from Louisa's birthday..(she is having her first baby in March!)... I have kept these, because... well, I don't know why... a time of innocence, a time of pure love... they live in my vintage dresser among other treasures and each time I look at them, it immediately whisks me back to the smell of their new born skin and the cuddles and laughter that we had when they were little... time goes on, my girls grow into women and relationships change... but the love is there always.
I will always love my girls... sometimes, I may not like them very much but the love is always there... ya gotta have a daughter to understand !
