they make me think of innocent childhood days bathed in sunshine and backyard adventures.
they bring to mind bare little arms and legs running through sprinklers in the heat of the summer.
they scatter softly across button noses and rosy cheeks, begging to be kissed and caressed.
they multiply daily as she plays outside, her imgaination aglow with the endless possiblities found in her small yet spacious world.
look closely, they are there, on the sweet face of this daughter of mine who is growing and changing each day.
they make me smile.
