We set out on a Friday morning to the Japanese Gardens at Herman Park. You wouldn’t know it by our smiles, but we had just had the longest week; Peter’s dad had been in the ICU for almost 2 weeks and had passed away just a few days prior to these being taken. Peter had been at the hospital most days and I kept the girls busy at home. Our days were running into each other as we tried to keep up with the changes that were happening with our sweet Grampy and in the end try to explain to our oldest that he was going to heaven with Jesus. She didn’t fully understand what was happening, so heading out for some sunshine was what we all needed. The luscious trees, tranquil ponds and chirping birds at the gardens seemed so heavenly. Making these wonderful memories helped us to heal in a way that I cannot describe.
Being surrounded by such a peaceful environment helped to clear our minds and laugh a little with our sweet girls. I am so glad that Terry with Rose and Eve photography was able to capture their smiles.
After our session, we headed out to the lake and walked around a bit with the girls and let them run around.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Momma’s. Despite all of life’s uncertainties we endure, help heal, and keep life going for our little ones even during the hard times.
Love and Light
