It's Father's Day today! Since it's the celebrated day for all Dads out there, I'll write about one of the many lovely walks we did as a family this week. I chose this one in particular because I got to step back from time to time, to watch my husband and my daughter. I wanted to freeze these moments.
Seven months ago, if you've been reading the blog for some time. We went through something very very difficult as a family. Something nightmarish that I can't still bring myself to talk about, yet with God's grace and power, we have survived it and moved on. During those times when I thought I would never experience such mundane moments with my husband again, like eating dinner or watching TV together, I would have given anything to be where we are today. So as I am several steps behind watching my daughter giggle in the baby carrier on my husband's back, I whisper a love-filled "Thank you" to God, my Father, hoping that the wind carries my message to Him.
" My Father gave me the greatest gift
anyone could ever give another person;
he believed in me."
"My father didn't tell me how to live;
and let me watch him do it."
- Clarence B. Kelland
We re-visited Les Gravelots again, following the trail this time and not the bike path. It's a 5.1km trail in a forest park in Olonne Sur Mer, France that starts at Aire de la Forgerie.
Happy Father's Day to all Dads out there!
Wishing you all a lovely Sunday!
Love & light,
