As you might have noticed I didn’t share a Living Arrows post last week. It was my intention to join in with this sweet linky every week. Though waking up on Monday morning to the horrible news that my friend had passed away the day before threw me, as it would most people. Somehow the post I had planned didn’t seem right and so I didn’t share a photo last week.

Life goes on though if a little less sparkly without her. From the person that she was, I know that she would want us to celebrate having known her, not stop living. Nothing reminds us more of the beauty of life than children and I know how much she cared for Caspian, too.


“You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.”

– Khalil Gibran


This photo was taken in Denmark on that Sunday. You wouldn’t think that he was suffering an ear infection and teething badly as he happily skipped along. Though you might believe that he had an epic toddler tantrum when we tried putting him back in his stroller moments later to get out of the cold and home quicker.

Caspian is getting strong, he’s big for his 23 months and it can be difficult when he throws a strop like that. Though knowing he wasn’t 100% we did go along with it as he’s usually a happy and sweet boy. So if you had been there you would have seen me squeezed into his stoller, the bigger ones you can attach to your bike, though, with Caspian in my arms and my mum pushing both of us the 15-minute walk home. What a sight we must have been. Now I wish I had a picture of that!

I hope you’ve had a wonderful week. Remember life is precious, cherish it and hold your loved ones a little closer and tell them how much they mean to you.

  1. I am so sorry for your loss. I know what you mean about cherishing life. I lost my auntie just before Christmas and it really makes you reassess.
    What a gorgeous photo, he really doesn’t look poorly at all. I hope he is feeling better now?

  2. I’m so sorry you lost your friend. We are at an age where we don’t expect our generation to pass away – it must be such a loss, and such a gap in your life. Thinking of you x

    Caspian doesn’t look sick at all, just joyously happy running around! x
