i'm so glad we said "YES!"
as we crested the embankment to go pick our spot to watch the fireworks from, we saw kids running all over with glo sticks glowing in the dark....and a cute young boy ran right up to forrest and offered him his choice of colors from the fistful of glowsticks he held! he even gave wyatt one as well..... what joy he exuded as he shared his treasures with others! what a blessing he was to us!
we picked our spot and spread out our blanket, and within 5 minutes the show had started! there was a wonderful breeze coming off the bay, and sounds of happy chatter, laughter and "oohs" and "aahs" filled the night air! as we sat in the shadow of the hathaway bridge, with the scents of the salt water and the sulphur permeating the air, we had such a great night enjoying the fireworks (even wyatt enjoyed them!), and i was reminded that it's OKAY to say "YES!" more often...these days of forrest wanting to see the fireworks with us will be gone FAR TOO SOON.....peace!
