One Sunday In August


This week’s Gallery entries are united as we all take a picture on one day in August, all on the same day and all thinking about three remarkable women who are making an extraordinary journey across the world. Josie, Sian and Eva have flown to Bangladesh to help raise awareness of the work Save the Children are doing to help mothers who are dealing with situations we can’t even imagine.

As I watched two of my children playing together on Sunday, carefree and happy, my worries about our lives were tiny and insignificant. When I turned on the tap clean, fresh water gushed into glasses. I walked a few paces to the cupboards and fridge to put together an evening meal. I tucked them into warm, comfortable beds. We all slept safely.

We are so very lucky.

My photograph was taken on Sunday 29th August at 9.51 am. They have full stomachs. They are well. They are happy. They are being a monster with two heads!

Please visit Sticky Fingers to see the other entries and go to Josie, Sian and Eva‘s blogs to see what they are writing about their trip to Bangladesh.
