A Special Day in My Child’s Life
Not long after I began professional blogging, I read advice about avoiding blog posts on politics and religion. I totally got it. I have a blogging friend who is very political and of course if affects who chooses to read her work and the brands who choose to work with her. I also have blogging friends who are religious and choose to share a lot about their beliefs. Then there are friends who don’t like religion at all and have made that very clear in their writing.
I guess no matter what opinions, political beliefs or religious preference or non preference you are, there will come a time when if your sharing your lifestyle glimpses of ones’ way of life will naturally become a part of the blog and social media.
I do have a religion. My family believe in Baptism and following the example of Jesus Christ and so on Saturday at the age of eight my daughter was baptised. This was a very momentous occasion for my family and my husband John took some beautiful photos.
Sylvia loves to wear beautiful dresses and we often take photos to share on the blog. These are no different and it would be a shame not to share out of fear of being judged for my family’s beliefs.
I decided in light of Sylvia’s special day, I will share our photos and if someone chooses to be offended and not return to the blog so be it. This is who I am and part of my family life and this is our family lifestyle blog.
Of course, I’m not going to preach or bible bash or even try and convert you from behind the screen, I simply wish to share the images of our special day, a day which was very beautiful, a precious moment for me and my husband and our child.
My daughter to me is so so beautiful. White is a symbol of purity and cleanliness. At the end of the day, none of us will be perfect.
We will all make mistakes but it is important for us to live by a set of values which can help us to be kinder, more compassionate and more loving towards one another. We can try to always be truthful and honest, to set aside time each day to talk and read as a family, to grow and help and strengthen one another.
To me there is nothing more important to me than my family and so with that said, I am sharing these photos of our special day. I have lots more lovely photos and plan to share some more in the coming days
