This week’s Sunday Stills theme falls on Mother’s Day celebrated in the U.S. The theme is embrace (thanks to Hugh for the great theme idea)!
To get you started, is my interpretation of embrace.
A photo of me and my dog Brodie last summer when we brought him home after two days in the Emergency Vet Hospital. Out of the blue he got extremely sick and was tested and diagnosed with a mild case of canine parvovirus, potentially deadly in young puppies and senior dogs.
I thought I would not see him alive after the veterinary staff took him away into isolation. His case was mild because he’d had a full round of vaccinations but still got sick.
When he came home that day, I clasped and cuddled him close to me. I love both my sweet pooches! Almost a year later and I cannot hug him enough!
Of course, you can interpret the theme any way you choose, and it does not have to have the sub-theme of mom. Here are some ideas to get you thinking from Dictionary dot com:
Embrace: to put one’s arms around and press tightly
Embrace: to surround or cover closely.
As a verb, embrace can mean accept or support (a belief, theory, or change) willingly and enthusiastically: “besides traditional methods, artists are embracing new technology.”
In this photo, my sister-in-law embraces her soon-to-be adopted daughter as we open Christmas presents.
We have embraced little EM and her sister into our family as our newest nieces!
My own mother is 500 miles away. I hope my family nearby can hug her for me.
Happy Mother’s Day!
Who or what will you embrace this week?
