ATC Wednesday - Stars


This worried little girl and the accompanying saying just remind me of the fears associated with that time as a child when the lights were turned out and the door closed....bedtime. The stories had been read, the kisses on the cheek received and the covers were tightly tucked around you and your favourite stuffed bedtime companion. There is such security in the light and the darkness brings with it fears and time to allow those fears to grow in one's mind. But we were reassured that our parents or care givers were never far away. This is my atc for the ATC Wednesday challenge this week.

(((Heather))) you conjure the warmest images. It also makes me think about when our parents are gone, or those very special people in our lives and we can remind ourselves that they are never far away because they are always in our hearts and watching over us. This is touchingly beautiful. Thank you for starting my day with a smile.
