I was just watching my Miss 3 sleeping and a memory struck me.
This memory comes often.
It was not so long ago.
The year was 2000.
I was on an date with my now husband.
We were walking in the Botanical Gardens in Brisbane and it started to rain.
I love rain but I hate being rained on.
If I were an animal, I'd be a cat.
So my devoted boyfriend (as he was then) clutched me and steered me to a tree where he...and the tree..sheltered me from most of the rain.
And he said something I will never forget...

"You're beautiful. I know our kids will be beautiful because of you."

Or words to that effect.

And he's right.

But every time I look at our kids I think...

"Our kids are so beautiful...because of their daddy."


  1. Awwww. Oh, and by the way ... mommy helped a lot in that as well.

  2. And this post is beautiful...coz of you ;) xx

  3. Beautiful. I'm going to hazard a guess that your kids are also beautiful because of how the two of you are together.

  4. That's so lovely Thea. Love the way you wrote this.

  5. Awww what a beautiful memory. I love reflecting on moments like that, makes you feel so loved and happy.
    It's also nice when you can see your partner in your children, kinda scares me some days, but mostly just makes my heart skip a beat :o)

  6. *sigh* That is such a beautiful thing to say. No wonder you married him. He sounds like a real keeper. xx

  7. Such a poignant moment to write about. So beautiful as I know you both must be because you are in love & you have great kids together. Sweet sweet love!!


Just one little comment will make my day.
