Friday, 26 April 2013: Twenty-Five Days Old.
Tonight, on the first full moon since she was born, we held a “blessing ceremony” for Ayla at the Foreshore.
The blessing was very simple, casual and lovely; nothing more than a few very close friends, a glass of bubbles and a short poem.
We asked the elements to look after her and make her safe, give her courage and show her love.
A bit alternative, we know, but considering we pray to the fish gods more than anything else we thought it fitting 🙂
