After an exhaustively satisfying jaunt to Disney Springs, we return to our Polynesian Paradise, with visions of plunging into a refreshing Oasis Pool.
This photo captures many emotions for me, transporting me back to the warmth of that day; tasty lunch on the deck of the Boathouse, our traditional “Downtown” shopping and snacking adventures, and how we all giggled at my comedic sprint to catch the bus. It was a memorable day.
But I see more, in this candid snapshot: I see a mom, who despite her aching muscles and parcels full of goodies, still manages to find the strength to lift her son (as he feigns exhaustion). I see his teenage brother, nearly as tall as Mom, selflessly sharing the pretend burden. I see a family with arms entwined, leaning on each other, helping each other, and knowing that they complete and are completely secure with each other.
I see years of nourished love, joy in the moment, and the promise of the future.lt was a memorable day, indeed!
I repost this photo, in response to this week’s WordPress photo Challenge: SECURITY
