This is for my daughter Joy. She has cared for Samuel for two years now as he has grown and developed, and this depicts the care, the love and watchfulness of motherhood.
Its not all been a bed of roses [or even helebores] by any means, but its good to just stop and consider the wonder of the gift of his life. Much to be thankful for.

Oh wow! The inserted manipulation reminds me of a stylised depiction that I have seen of a mother cradling her baby. Wonderful and beautiful.
