layout a day (fatherhood album - page 3) day 13



another page in the fatherhood album. the quote on this page reads, "there's no pillow quite so soft as a father's strong shoulder. -richard l. evans" this little page strikes a cord with me today... my husband has been gone a month and a half now... after talking to him this afternoon the girls said again how much they miss him. they talked about wanting to go camping... and could we go as soon as he comes home... so this picture of us camping together reminds me again of the joys of homecoming even amidst the sadness of taking all of the christmas decor down alone surrounded by nothing but laundry. this too shall pass... and there are brighter days ahead.
