Family, marriage, womanhood, a simple life at home

In the photos, you can see some lovely fresh figs and carobs from local trees. Each time, I am overwhelmed by the generous bounty there is for taking, as the summer (slowly and, in Israel, almost imperceptibly) draws to a close.
Also, the past week was a mark of a kind for me - the nursing pillow got put away, for the first time in 3.5 years. I am still nursing Tehilla, but not often or long enough to justify taking half the space from the couch by a nursing pillow that sits there full-time. Looking at the old dear nursing pillow gave me a bittersweet pang, as I thought of how long and well we've been able to nurse, and how this season, inevitably, passes away to be replaced by new things, just as lovely but in a different way, and how what has passed may never return again, and will remain all the more precious in our memory.
I hope you, too, find new beauties in your daily journey, wherever it may take you.
