Flahback Friday

Photobucket Pictures, Images and Photos

This weeks flashback Friday is me holding Rachel when she was just one week old. She was tiny and fragile and beautiful and she needed me entirely.

This week I have been taken back to that place of new motherhood as I watch her ill with scarlet fever, unable to do much and full of fear and love. I'm Shocked how vulnerable she can still be even at 5 years old. I'm thrilled she's getting better and arguing with daddy again. I'm watching her rash like a hawk and I'm very aware that motherhood is a challenge as well as a blessing forever more.

If you have never blogged a Flashback Friday then I highly recommend it for a number of reasons:
1. It's a great excuse to go into your photo archives and have a rummage
2. Pictures cam be more powerful than words
3. Everything cones into focus when you think back
4. It's just good old fashioned fun

Precious picture, precious memories and SO happy that Rachel is improving. It is hard on us mamas to watch our babies be sick. I hope you are getting a little rest now. Before long all will be back to normal and this memory will be a footnote, not a headline,,, <3
