I took this picture Tuesday night because it made me think that we're purposefully growing love. We're being pushed away, stomped on, kicked, bit, spit on, peed on, pooped on, challenged in ways we did not think possible, and we still keep on planting our love, feeding it, regulating the temperature for optimum growth, nurturing it, singing to it, encouraging it, soothing it, keeping it safe and protected....we keep on growing the love. No matter the obstacles in our path. Sometimes we have to start over with better soil, light, conditions....but we keep on keeping on. We do what needs to be done.
The Love Farmers. That's us.
The importance of growing the love in me is not lost. This is something that I have to do to be able to grow J's love. Feeding my soul.....photography is an important way to feed myself beauty and love. If I'm keeping myself in the optimum growing environment beautiful things happen between my child and I. As mother's it's a hard job to do. There is always something else that needs to be done and we are forgotten. We can't forget ourselves.
What are some things that you do to grow your love?
