#MySundayPhoto – Eternal Flame

It’s official, winter has arrived. The temperature has dropped dramatically and we saw the first flurries of snow earlier this week. I have pulled out the soft, snuggly blankets for the sofa and have finally been allowed to put the fire on.

I took this photo a few weeks ago whilst giving the fire a ‘pre-winter’ test run, it’s since been lit almost daily. I love watching a fire, the flames almost seem to dance and if you look closely enough you can sometimes make out shapes from within the flames.

Eternal Flame

#MySundayPhoto - Eternal Flame

My friend recently told me that whilst camping with a group of friends he found that they all sat around the camp fire in silence, each one of them totally transfixed by the flames.

There is a certain kind of magic about a flickering flame, maybe this is why we use candle flames to remember and to take a moment to reflect.

November 13th will always remain as a day of reflection for me, a day to remember, a day which will remain etched in my mind forever but serves as a reminder of  just how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family with two amazing children.
