Photos for Our Mum

Like most students, my sons had online classes for the whole school year last year. They started another school year 2 weeks ago. It was the first time after a year that they attended their classes on campus. My 3 sons attend the same university and the same school campus. Because they all have different class schedules, they have to set a time if they want to meet one another. Yesterday, they met for lunch.

Before they ate their lunch, my second son went to a group of girls who were having their lunch on the table near them. He asked one of the girls if she could take a photo of him and his brothers. He asked, “Would you mind if you could take a photo of us? We have to send the photos to our mum.”

One of the girls said, “Sure!” and proceeded to take photos. The girl asked, “Do you like me to take the photos horizontally or vertically? Which angle do you like me to take from?” My sons replied, “Anything is fine.” The girl said, “Okay, I am taking photos now. Hang on, I need to take more from this angle. More shots from this side.” The girls from the other table left the table for the photography. How sweet!

I attached some of the photos the girl took of them in one of the school canteens. They took some photos near the school store too. They sent the photos to me while they were having lunch to make me happy. How thoughtful! I pray that these boys will not lose their sweetness and expressiveness no matter how old they get.

To my sons and to all children in the world, this is my prayer for all of you:

24 ‘May the Lord bless you

    and protect you.

25 May the Lord smile on you

    and be gracious to you.

26 May the Lord show you His favor

    and give you His peace.’

Numbers 6:24-26
