kodomo-no-hi, 2014

As with last year, I've set up our old kabuto ornament for Children's Day (kodomo-no-hi) again this year for my son (and my daughter), but this year I sketched some origami kabuto that were given to us by a family friend. These were made by his late wife, and though the elderly couple had no children of their own, it reminded me of the thoughts and prayers my own parents must have had every day for us as we grew up, and of our role to be a blessing to our own kids.
