Living Arrows - Week 9 ♥

Your children are not you children,  They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth. The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness; For even as He loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

I am taking part in I Heart Snapping's weekly Living Arrows project, a photography project to capture an image which represents childhood to you through the actions, likes, dislikes, looks and movements of your own children. Below is my picture for the fifth week of Living Arrows. Now spring has arrived my baby boy and I have been spending time in the great outdoors, getting some fresh air and enjoying the sites around us. This week alone Tyler Lee has been to the beach for the first time, he's been on countless walks and has visited the wildlife park again. This weeks Living Arrows picture was taking on the beach, a day I will never forget. I hope the weather is fine this week so we can go back, sit on the beach, cuddling into each other, staring out into the harbour and being lulled by the calming sound of the sea.
