You can measure the flow of time by a calendar or a clock, but another way, a way that touches my heart (and my pocketbook) is to see how much my sons’ feet have grown. I remember being able to hold my baby boy’s feet in the palms of my hands, and knowing that I wouldn’t be able to do it for long.
I really had no idea!
Now, my oldest and I are the same size; which is why I treasure this photograph so much. Those little feet don’t stay the same size. Time has a way of making them grow. I have faith that someday when I’m an old woman and they are fully grown that those very precious feet will always find a way back to my door.
Over the past 45 weeks, I have joined with 15 other women across the world from the Bloom Forum to make a circle of photographs with our blogs. In that circle, each photographer links to another’s unique interpretation of the weekly theme. Some of my favorite themes are Family, Human Connection, Silhouette, and Light and Dark.
Please visit the ridiculously talented Mary Schannen of Melange Photography at http://melangephotographyblog.com/ to see her TIME photograph for this week.
