One of the things I missed from living near the beach is having lazy early morning beach walks. Unhurried, calm, serene and the most special thing, barefoot. Away from the chaos, and free from the hustle and bustle of the city.With the wonderful backdrop of the beach, my thoughts oftentimes drifts away and going places as the gentle wind touches my cheeks while holding my daughter’s hand.
There’s something so therapeutic and calming whenever I step on the soft, ticklish sandy shores along Arabian Gulf. I’ve always been a beach girl and you can imagine my glee when the day comes that my tiny human finally put her tiny toes in the shores and feel the waves and sand…for the first time. She loved every second of it. It was such a precious moment. She left her footprint, a precious mark —
unscaled and raw . This tiny foot mark that I have excitedly captured in photo before the waves swept it away . Looking at her tiny feet made me realize that she had a big world ahead, waiting for her to explore, and that she had to stand firmly on a big feet in order to thrive.
But right now, she’s still so tiny, her feet still so fragile, yet so special.
That once in her life back in Kuwait, she had walked baby steps there, watched the sunsets, and sunrises too, played barefoot, and waddled her tiny feet in the shores…making memories.We made thousands of footprints in the beach… a beautiful chapter in our Expat life.
With the beach front far from where we live right now, she now walks on different grounds. She’s stomping happily on pebbles & cobbled stone pavements and running though the lush grass fields. She’s making her own stride,taking her time to feel the ground,and walking confidently in her own feet. She even learned to jump into muddy puddles and walked on the crispy autumn leaves. She’s still making foot prints, leaving traces of her childhood-in her own tiny world.
As I’ve said before; the Littlest feet makes the greatest footprints in our hearts.
Do you like walking in the beach with your little ones? How was the experience?
