Footprints In The Sand

And so...these little footprints in the sand belong to my dimple faced boy. He is the person that now influences many of the decisions that I make in my life these days. I want to give him all the things that happy children love. As I get older I realize that life isn't meant to be all burdens and struggles. It's about finding creative ways to work through your issues, it's about laughter and good times, it's about knowing that there are people in your life who care about everything that goes on in your life...not the people that just want to know. I'm becoming the type of mom who doesn't want my kid to miss out on the fun kid letting him play outside in the rain, eat his dessert before his dinner, having watergun fights in the dark and inviting all his friends over for breakfast in their pajamas. Those little footprints have settled me into a different world. A world where I'd much rather host a dinner party or meet some friends at a coffee shop or bake cupcakes and cookies...rather than party.
