Life's Too Short
A few weeks ago we were visiting my mom for a few days at her house, in the Pocono Mountains.
We went to this amazing little secluded spot in the forest to do a little hiking.
When we were done we met my mother down by a stream to collect our things.
My mother was standing in the stream. When Willa saw her she started pointing and flailing her arms indicating that she wanted to go in the stream too.
We didn't have a bathing suit for her with us. Nor did we have any sandals.
We decided that life is too short, so we let her just walk into the stream with her shoes and clothes on.
She just walked in with no fear and started splashing around.
It was one of those moments as a parent that I will always cherish.
It was one of those moments that I remind myself of when times are tough.
It was one of those moments that makes it all worthwhile.
