i took this photo of my middle son a few years ago and i still look at it in wonder. a captured moment in time of a boy full of dreams. a wishful heart. a hopeful, free spirit. a life full of blank pages.
wishes. big, small, frivolous and stunningly complex. as children, we believe. we want to believe.
wishes on rainbows, starlight, a full moon. falling stars. daisies, dandelions and fallen eyelashes.
fun. playful. the igniters of dreams.
but over time, burdens overshadow free spirits. to-do lists replace wish lists. we forget the power of a dream.
the simple joy hidden in a blissful, wishful heart.
through the eyes of a child we see. that a happy life is made of small things. dandelions and dreams. and wishes come true.
