Sally's prompt this week was HOPE, with a Note to Self:
Put the self-doubt and worry on the shelf for this week and
capture what represents hope in my life.
And truly, there is nothing that 'represents hope in my life' more than these two beautiful young people...
... our kids!
It took seven years to get Samuel (after 3 miscarriages and 1 stillbirth - a daughter, Connie), but once the doctors figured out the problem, we were good to go, and Esther arrived two years later :)
Every day, they bring joy, laughter and wonderful insights into our lives...
Sam will be 18 in September, and next year after A levels, hopes to go to uni, though he's still not 100% sure to read what... He is tall, like his Dad, at well over 6ft.
Esther will be 16 in December, and has her sights set on being a child psychologist.
No one knows what the future may bring, but with young people like our two and their friends taking their places in the world, to me it looks very hope-full :)
I wonder how many other family pictures there'll be in this week's gathering over at Sally's Studio Sublime... Pop over to find out!
Till next week xx
