Do you ever come across a picture that stirs up something in your heart... an emotion of longing and sadness. A picture that moves you deeply because behind that picture is a meaning that is dear to you.
I saw this picture on a website and my heart did a flip flop. This picture reminds me of days with out a care and total freedom. It takes me back to a time when I could pick up and go and travel the foreign lands of the earth, sit at a cafe and enjoy the people passing by and actually take it all it. Seeing things I could only dream of. I miss walking for hours down a coble stone street, stopping to look at everything my soul desired, enjoying the sunshine on my face and watching the clouds drifting passed the volcanoes in the distance.
But, for now I sit here in my big comfy robe with my two little ones tucked safely in bed. Yes, my heart misses the things I experienced in the past but nothing can compare to being told you are a "princess" by your son daily or you are the best mommy or better yet "mommy you are so beautiful. I love you." Oh yes, nothing can compare to that... not even beautiful lands far off. Not even diamonds or gold.
"Ten thousand parks where deer do run,
Ten thousand roses in the sun,
Ten thousand pearls beneath the sea,
My babe more precious is to me."
Do you ever get sentimental when seeing a random picture, hearing a song, smelling a certain scent. Some memories can be such a beautiful thing!
