Wordful Wednesday

For once I think I finally have a picture that could be Wordless, but you know me. I can’t let it be. I feel an obligation to tell you about the photo. Because I want to. If I left it Wordless, then you wouldn’t know that this is one of my favorite shots of the summer. Or that it reminds me to slow down and enjoy my children, their childhood and the little things that make them happy. Things like an ice cream cone on a hot day, or wearing a cowboy hat just because one wants to. It reminds me that these moments only happen once, and to cherish them.

Is it me, or has Mr. Linky disappeared? I’m assuming they are having technical difficulties. Please check back so that you can add your link. I don’t want to miss out on any Wordful Wednesdays!

    What is it about pics of kids with ice cream? There’s one as a background on the computer beside me and it’s SO cute. And one of my fave pics of my kids, was taken this summer while they were eating ice cream at the springs.
    Great picture!

    It also takes a great Mom to let the kids wear the hat in public and to buy the icecream that will be down the elbows and chin and front of the shirt. I don’t do either often enough. Thanks for the reminder.
