When I look back at these photos I immediately feel everything I felt when I was there. I feel the softness of a mothers touch to her baby. I feel the sweet intimacy of family. The beauty of a home. And the silly baby voices we all use to talk to children. This photo is everything to me; a baby’s complete and total trust to receive what she needs from her mom; the very one who was designed to give her just that. This photo was taken on any other normal night in one of my dearest friends homes as they got their daughter ready for bed. I was sitting on the bathroom floor just chatting and observing such beauty from a close distance. This moment was ordinarily profound to see life as it was designed. A child in need, a mom who has love to give, and the gift of trust birthed out of it all. I think we can all receive a bit of healing from seeing this whether you were sitting on cold tile watching it up close or viewing it on an iphone. Lets all take in the softness of love from mother to daughter and show our own self some of that softness today.
