Simple Things {May 29}

by Melissa on May 29, 2011

My daughter loves to dance. I love to watch her dance, and I love that she loves something so much. She goes after what she wants with such intensity, it makes me happy.

I wish I had the courage to have followed my passion at such a young age. But I’m learning from her and going after what makes me happy now.

Join Rebecca Cooper and me in celebrating the Simple Things. Visit her blog to see how you can play along.

Yes, that’s my youngest daughter, Aiketa. I was taking silhouette shots of her, but as the sun moved behind some clouds and we were waiting for it to pop back out, she began running and leaping through the air. Of course, I quickly began snapping. Took me a few tries to catch her.

Beautiful dancer. Beautiful lines. We have children so that they can teach us the courage to go for it.

Vivian, I think you’re right. Both my daughters have taught me to be courageous and do follow my passion. And as a parent, I thought I was supposed to do all the teaching!
