I don’t want money, I want happiness
I don’t want holidays, I want memories
I don’t want luxuries, I want comfort
I don’t want bullshit, I want the truth
I don’t want pity, I want support
I don’t want to be right, I want to be heard
I don’t want to lead, I want to collaborate
I don’t want popularity, I want real friends
I don’t want fame, I want love
I came across this photo from 8 years ago while browsing through the files in my pictures folder. Wow! It is amazing how much has happened in that time. My daughter is now so grown up and beautiful. She was a handful back then and still is today – just in a different way.
She’s at her 5th birthday party. Dressed as a fairy – naturally. She was so into fairies at that age. That dress cost a small fortune but she wore it a LOT! Her little cheeks are red from running about having fun. In another room, there was a bouncy castle. She wore herself out that day bouncing and running and playing with her friends. It was a great day.
Looking at this image, part of me wishes I could go back to that time. I wasn’t aware back then how simple things really were. I have learned so much since then and can now appreciate everything so much more. I think when she gets home from school, I am going to give her a hug and tell her how much I love her.
