Let them be little – Flowers in tiny palms.
An act of kindness, thoughtfulness, a small but meaningful gesture of love.
Having a gift as simple as a picked flower handed to you by your littles is something so precious. Well to me it is, and forever it will be. Something so small yet it can impact you in more ways than one. I love the reaction on my girls faces when they see how happy I am and sometimes with the occasional emotional eyes caused by them choosing a dear little bunch of handpicked flowers and saying “here Mummy, they’re especially for you”.
It means the world to me.
This is something I never want to grow old.
I know that as my littles do blossom through the years, this tradition and act of love may fade in regards to flower picking, and will be substituted to a different way of affection, exploration. but for now I am going to embrace and take it all in. They know how much I love to make our home look pretty with lots of florals, they do too! We’ve even got a little DIY project coming up linked to this.
I often see some parents not really taking notice of their little ones when in their own world, I’ve even seen parents brush off their children when being handed the simple thing that is, a bunch of flowers. Wether they are the best bunch, or some wilted dull weeds – its a big deal for them. what they think is magical, some may not even consider thinking about or making a point of how beautiful they are.
I love to see the magic light up in my girls eyes when they find something that is really special to them. Children thrive off of knowing that they’re making people happy – mine do, in the best way possible. I hate the thought of their world ever being crushed if I didn’t think that bunch of flowers/weeds were truly something amazing.
Fancy joining in your precious little memories? I’d love to read all about them!
