This week I chose of photo from the past with my parents. Unfortunately they are back home right now as I pursue my hockey and school dreams. However, I think this photo really gives a powerful visual of the relationship with have all in one photograph. They have been my number one supporters since day one and I believe this photo taken at Christmas time really shows the love and support I get each and ever day.
My mother and father both agree that a photo capturing us all together at once would be a great way to express our strong relationship. It has been difficult for all of us since I have spent eight to ten months of a year away from home for hockey and school so anytime we spend quality time together it is always special.
A photo with any location of three of us is always special. If anyone else were to be in the picture, it would be with more of our family or friends. Any time spent with family and friends is good time spent and it can be captured in a photo, then it is even better. It also seems like many of the pictures we take revolve around hockey because we are a hockey passionate family.
I learnt that family is honestly everything, at least to me. Families that stick together are able to push through life. Not all family has to be blood to blood because it can be a close friend that you may consider family as well. It is always nice knowing for me personally that I have the love and support of my parents through the thick and thin.
It was nice asking my parents about this photo as well. Getting their perspective on family and how far we have come together. We could not have done it without each other and for that I am grateful and thankful each and every day I wake up!
