"Oh! I think I will sit here all day and just stare at this picture! It's so beautiful!"
Today, we surprised my mom with a very special gift. She positively beamed at her new photo. My mom's face doesn't often show such pure joy, but today she sat smiling, laughing and chatting about her gift. (I'm so thankful to Canvas N'Decor for inviting us to try their service - I don't think this lovely idea would have occurred to me on my own.)
Are you like me? Are your photos buried in your digital files? Is there one that makes your heart swell with joy buried on your hard drive? That's where this photo was languishing.
This photo is one of those special moments that is a treat to remember. Our son was 5, our daughter 7. With them and the twin girls next door we visited the zoo. It was one of those rare summer days that was sunny and hot, but not oppressively. Also, a day where the laughs far outnumbered the tears or raised voices. In the children's play area, there was a turtle shell perfect for little ones to climb inside.
My little boy is wearing his precious Hawaiian surfer outfit. He's holding the sailor hat that he refuses to wear now but was the kind of adorable that brought smiles to strangers. That boy could steal an old lady's purse in that hat and no one would mind - that level of cuteness.
My girlie wears that kind of smile that beams into your heart and makes it swell three sizes.
My mom needs those little smiles. She doesn't like to leave her house - so the smiles need to come to her. Blowing it up to a great size and honouring it with a beautiful canvas makes it feel even more special. Each week we take her her groceries and visit. Now, it's also a little treat for me to visit with my favourite photo each week, too.
