As I walked my 6 year old daughter to school today , we walked and chatted as we usually do .
The sun was shining , the birds were singing as I took her beautiful soft hand in my hand , and savoured every minute !
Her hand is so small , and it won’t always be so small ! It won’t always fit in mine !
She won’t always want to hold my hand !
So we walked , and I just held her hand and wrapped the memory up in pretty pink paper , to save it in my mind !
I went to work and savoured this early morning walk !
We can often wander through life , rushing from home to school to work ,
and not really take the time to appreciate the here and now !
I went to my mums after work , she minds the kids on a Tuesday , and I shared my thoughts with her and I took her hand and I held it ! It mightn’t be as small as it used to be but I hope it felt as nice !!
“Once I had her hand, I never wanted to let go of her.”
