Candle in the Dark

Is there any relationship more important, more potentially life-changing, than the one between a mother and a child?



Can anyone shape you more with their love or their lack?

Can any loss alter the course of your life more catastrophically?

And does any connection to another human have the potential to grow and evolve in the way a mother/child connection can?


I am blessed to have grown into adulthood with a wonderful relationship with my mother. She is my biggest supporter, the one who sees the light in me when I can’t see it myself. She is the arms I fall into when the world falls apart.

She is my candle in the dark.


I usually make mother/small child pairs of elves but there is something profound in the love between a mum and her own mum, some great change that happens after a grandchild is born, even if that something is only forgiveness.


I will get these elves ready for their forever home and then I will video call my own mum. Just because.
