Five Minute Friday: View

Today I'm linking up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday again. 



I watch him. He sits on the floor with his back to me. He is immersed in his book, the one that he loves so much. He skims through it quietly. I trace his body with my eyes. Notice his upright back, something he worked on so hard. I see the tender skin of his neck and I know exactly how soft and warm it is when I kiss it or nuzzle my face in there. I see the back of his head, adorned by his gorgeous hair with cheeky curls pointing in different directions.

Since my son was a tiny baby I have always loved to watch him from behind. He always seemed to be even more fragile from this point of view, making my heart overflow with love.



  1. beautiful picture created with your words. i wonder what it is that gives him the increased appearance of fragility from that view. any ideas?

  2. Lovely observations - it's clear that you love him dearly.
    Children are a joy to watch especially when they do not know you are watching.

  3. Aren't they wonderful? I still stare at my Bunny in awe.
    In from FMF.

  4. Aw, Joy, this is so precious! Should be printed up in fancy calligraphy and framed or something. :)

  5. Thank you so much for all your lovely commments! :-)
