For the past few years my daughter hasn’t been happy with us having to move across the country. For three years all I have heard her say is how much she hates it here, that this place sucks, yada yada!
So it was a blessing when we went to the ocean, an she got out there by herself, without realizing we were taking pictures. We captured a genuine smile.
She was so carefree!
Which makes my smile more, makes me happy. There is nothing in this world I wouldn’t do to ensure her happiness, but I have to do what I have to do as a mother first, to keep her safe.
