Tuesdays Around The World: Today


Even though I vowed to keep my eyes open -- to joyfully grasp each moment of growing up -- it continues to take me by surprise.

The rows of perfect, white teeth.

The ponytail down to the middle of her back.

The strong hands, holding tight to a wobbly swing.

The long legs, running across a grassy lawn.

The blue eyes, learning to soak up every detail.

The babyish voice, speaking about big-girl thoughts.

It really is an amazing thing to watch: the growing of a girl.

  6. Children do that to us, don't they --open up our eyes to every little thing about them? Every. single. thing. that brings out the wonder and gratefulness in our hearts. :)

  7. Precious... still waiting for my little one to venture beyond "Ma Ma", "pease [sic]", "thank you"...

  8. Wouldn't it be nice to keep them that beautiful and innocent a bit longer. I think my boys grow up way to fast and they are only 6 and 3. I still cuddle them like a baby which they are not so keen on. Oh well, they'll get over it.

  13. Such a cute photo...how did it make me feel? Like a little girl growing up in Chicago. Playing at the park was such a big part of my childhood, I can almost feel the wind in my hair as I swing. Thanks for the memory, it is such a nice shot!
