oh what a wonderful picture Sallymandy :)
and an equally wonderful sentiment that made me think back to my Daddy teaching my first born to skip down the hill from school when he picked her up....
She was 4....he was 70 :)

I adore this photo! How cute!

And the quote is so true, and has been throughout time. Thanks for posting it as a reminder to all who pass this way.
