Connection (n.) a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else.
In this session- I asked the kiddos to help me define the word connection. Little boy piped up and said “when something is together instead of apart”. I then asked what do you think that means when I say- I love creating and capturing connection in all my family sessions? He then simply grabbed his Mom’s hand and held it. Straight from the mouth of babes!
See- to me- connection is a verb. It about touching, closeness, and emotion. It’s about showing in action what your love for each other looks like. Words are words but a snuggly embrace or walking hand in hand… cannot be beat when it comes to creating a representation of a feeling, something you cannot otherwise see.
I don’t know about you but my family is my life’s greatest treasure. They are where I feel comfortable and safe and the most like myself. I have never laughed harder or learned more than in the refuge of my own home and with the people who I love most and who love me best. The other day I was reliving the memory of when my parents dropped my off at college to my little girl. I had never felt so alone. No one and nothing could distract me from how much I missed them… that is until I realized that because of who they are and how they love me- they are a piece of me. They are always with me. Have you ever felt this way?
If you are reading my description of how I feel about my family and nodding your head because you know exactly what I mean and how I feel- please come to your family session ready to connect with each other! For its these moments that you never want to forget or fade. Now- let's make sure that doesn't happen... :)
