As she takes your lead…



…is my take on Dotty Divas‘ Challenge 3.   An interpretation of this cute Starbucks advert: 




As soon as I saw the advert for this challenge, I know the perfect photo/s to go with it!  The problem was,  I didn’t have such kind of photo!  It took me ages to execute and take these because of the rains.  Thank God for a few minutes of sunshine, vacant lots around our village and Photoshop, my children  seemed to be in some remote, provincial, fresh-air filled field  😀




Your Lead


Hidden Journal (a note for my eldest in the small envelope behind the flowers):


Dearest Gaby, 

Let me tell you that I’m so proud of you for being a good sister to Alexa.  You’re such a sweet, nurturing, protective,  patient  and loving sister.   I’m so happy to see how much fun you two have when you play with one another in spite of your age gap.  You find pleasure indulging in toddler activities and you see how Alexa loves everything about you and always follows what you do.  Always remember that Alexa will just do that as she grows up.  She will  look up to you and adore you.  So you have to be an example to her.   Teach her simple good manners by saying thank you and please all the time.   Be humble and say sorry when you’re at fault and in no time, she will understand it and be humble herself.   Be kind and generous and I’m sure she’ll take after you.    Don’t forget to brush your teeth before going to sleep, remind her too so she won’t forget.   I know you love reading and I hope Alexa does too.  Always say your prayers before you two sleep.   Show her  how a good daughter, a good sister, a good student, a good girl and a child of God should be…as she takes your lead.   I love you so much!    — Mommy  Sept09
