Blowing in the wind
In so many ways this picture describes my relationship with my sweet, spirited Zoelle. I honestly don't know if I can put it into words as to why it does. It's one of those things that just is. I look at it and I see her soft spirit that can so easily be crushed. I look at it and I want to protect her from anything in her life to come. I look at it and see us each trying to go our own way, yet also joining together in the middle. It's just us...together..again...like we used to be. And I cherish it. Of course, I cherish times like this too
when her spunk and spirit are out in full force. Of course she can frustrate me to no end then, but I'm learning slowly to let go and enjoy the moments with her and laugh. For those moments of frustration will pass all too quickly. So I'll enjoy the dandelions of life now as one day they will be blown away in the wind.
