Living Arrows 2017 12/52

The Living Arrows project took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth”.

Every week, I shall be posting a photo taken the week before and I can’t wait to see the collection at the end of the year. 

This week’s photo:



Living Arrows Co-sleeping



Heart. Break. Moment.

Not in a bad way of course, achingly beautiful in my mind. I feel so blessed to have these pictures for when Bear is grown up, has flown the nest and no longer needs me in the same way.

Due to my health problems, I go to bed at the same time as Bear – it’s the only way that I can manage to be any type of competent mother and rest my body enough to be able to be the best single mummy that I can be on a morning, after school and weekend. Last night this is how he fell asleep. One day he won’t want this. he won’t want to be so close to me and so until that day comes, I’m not going to push him away. He is SO independent, so confident, socially he makes me so proud as due to being an only child, he is excellent at approaching children and striking up a friendship but at this time of the day, he comes back to me and needs me. 


Thanks for reading,

  1. That photo is beautiful. The children only fall asleep with me if they’re really poorly sadly – I would love a moment like this to hold onto x
