love thursday: parenthood

My friend Kandy and her son, Sam.

"It's not only children who grow.  Parents do, too.  As much as we watch to see what our children do with their lives, they are watching us to see what we do with ours.  I can't tell my children to reach for the sun.  All I can do is reach for it myself."

~  Joyce Maynard


Happy Love Thursday, everyone.  Please leave your stories or links to your words or images of love in the comments below.

And here's to reaching for the sun today.
