“Many friends will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart.”
Saturday night my youngest daughter convinced one of her older sisters to go outside and play with her. Unbeknownst to me they had gotten out the side walk chalk and drew a huge garden. Later as mom and dad were dragged outside to view the “masterpiece” we saw that they had drawn roses, flowers, tomato plants etc in their garden. Despite sprinkles of rain they kept at it! Soon another sister joined the art session; she drew a house and a garden. What I got the biggest kick out of was her details in her flat house( which looked like the floor plan of a home). She had furniture, bedrooms complete with bed, dresser closet, bathrooms with toilets, sinks, and bathtub and even a garage with 2 limos parked in them!! LOL
Yesterday they spent almost all day out there making more houses with even more elaborate details They even went as far as drawing animals such as chickens and a cow so we could have our own supply of milk and eggs was their theory! At some point another friend’s child came and drew a beach. Then last night arrived and with it a thunderstorm and heavy rain thus wiping out a whole driveway of art and all we are left with are the memories stuck inside our heart and mind. Which brings me full circle to the quote in the beginning here. The question for myself and all of you is this; are WE leaving footprints in others hearts?
