The Gallery – Black and White

My biggest boy. Beach walking. Click on the picture to make it bigger.

This photo makes my heart sing and ache at the same time. I am so proud of who he has become and I can feel the strings tugging as he begins to leave.

For Tara’s Gallery at Sticky Fingers. This week’s theme is Black and White. Go look!

    My 2nd eldest has just left home although it doesnt feel like it because his place is only 100 yds away! Still it got me thinking about the day when they have all flown the nest…I dread the Day! x

    God these posts are making me so emotional today! Lovely picture and lovely sentiment xx

  16. That is a stunning photo. I mostly love that my kids grow up like that but a small part of me wants the closeness that them depending on me brings. At least Missy Woo still crams onto my knee.

  18. Gorgeous photo and heartfelt words – really lovely🙂

  24. This is achingly breathtakingly beautiful.

  25. What an emotive pictures. Beautiful, yet sad as well.

  26. Although I have twin toddlers I do have 2 older children from a previous relationship, both have left the nest and are living happy successful lives. It’s a hard transition – I got told off for mothering too much! But you step back and see what all your hard work was for.
    Beautiful image, brimming with suggestion and words
