Broken Light: A Photography Collective

Photo taken by a depressed wife and mother. When I feel like I can’t pick myself up off the floor of depression, I look at this photo. I may be a few steps behind, but maybe I’ll catch up some day. In the meantime, I’ll watch with awe, amazed that this is my family and they somehow find a way to love me when I can’t even love myself.

    I know the feeling. Love from others when we let it in…is such a special gift.

    It’s a simple photo of a man and a child together but behind this photo is a wonderful story of how love and family can affect someone greatly in a very good way. :)

    Thanks for sharing the photo and the story behind it. Every picture tells a story, but sometimes, there’s more to the story than can be seen in the photo. Merci!

    I can relate. Another way to look at it is that the caboose has perspective and views that can’t be had at the front of the train. Prayers for continued wellness. ~ Kate
