This picture reminds me of my parents. No, they don’t look like elephants:) … but I know that the amount of unconditional love they poured out to us as we were growing up is enormous. Immeasurable. Though we’ve had our fair share of typical arguments (I was a teenager once, after all), I’ve grown to appreciate them so much more when I entered adulthood. Similar to this beautiful photo, you know there is so much unspoken connection between parent and child that your heart feels an embrace. And that’s how I feel the moment I walk through the door of my parents’ home.
I know that some children in this world are not as fortunate to have a person care for them but I do hope that they meet someone at some point in their lives who will make them feel this safe, this loved. It’s a great feeling most tend to take for granted.
