Please welcome Heather, my Blog Exchange partner for July. I will be posting on her blog today. Out them this month is: "In My/A Child's Eyes". Please visit Heather's blog often, and enjoy her writing.
In my children’s eyes I see the past. I see my grandparents. I see my parents. I see myself as a child.
Through their eyes, the world is small. Menards is the entire city of Rochester. Going to visit Grammy and Poppa takes minutes even when they live several hundred miles away. Teachers sleep at school.
Through their eyes, parents know everyone and everything…until they grow into teenagers.
Through their eyes the greatest disappointment is not getting to read with Daddy.
Through their eyes, a smile is all that’s needed to make things better.
Through their eyes, all creatures are interesting; all the world is to be explored. There is no danger, only adventure.
Through their eyes, there will always be a tomorrow. All loved ones will always be around. (And I wish I could believe that too.)
Through their eyes everyone is a potential friend. No one would ever hurt them. Everyone is worthy of their hugs.
Through their eyes, everyone can make mistakes and still be loved. Even parents.
Heather is Mom to 2 children, M who is almost 5, and K who is almost 3.
Heather’s mind contains random thoughts and she feels compelled to share
them with strangers via her blog. M's blue eyes reflect her father, while
K's brown eyes reflect the stuff his Mommy is made of. Thanks to Gunfighter
for sharing his space with me today.
