A lot of good things come out of having children. One of the great blessings we received when MiniiMe was born was being putting into contact with some great people. In particular my mother's group. We meet pretty much every Wednesday for three years and then on and off over the last four years. Some more than others.
On Saturday we got together to celebrate the children reaching their 7th birthdays and to have some family photos done.
There was something in the air. Everyone was happy to be there, there was joy, there was a lot of love.
The seven year olds all lay together with their heads touching as they had for a photo when they were only a few months old. It was a special moment. We had got through some tough parenting together, shared our children's childhood and hopefully will share their futures. The community bonds were strong.
I am very thankful for these beautiful ladies.
