I have decided to participate in a blogging event called “Blogging From A to Z Challenge”. Each day for the month of April I will write a post corresponding to a letter of the alphabet. As you may have guessed, today’s letter is “G”.
His eyes weren’t always green.
They started out the same unfinished shade that all babies possess.
Until the moment when that sparkle appears.
The sparkle of awareness – of their surroundings
The sparkle of recognition – of the people who love them
The sparkle of determination – to become who they are meant to be
Now when I look into his almost turquoise eyes,
I see the child who inspired me to be the best I could – for him.
I see the man he has grown to be, still inspiring me with his enthusiasm and zest for life.
And I know why green is my favorite color.
