(Day 302) cradled

Dear Layla

in the years when you look back through the photographs of your precious babyhood

I want you to know just how many hours you have spent like this

cradled in the arms of your mother, your father, your brother and your big sisters

held lovingly in the arms of the ones who love you

and the ones you love

In the absence of a cot or suitably clean place to lay you down today, as we commenced renovations on our house, this is how you spent many of your hours. In the arms of your brother and sisters. 

How blessed you are to know such unconditional love.
