12 years ago I started dating my now wife. Her family home was about .25 miles from a local ice cream stand. We would often times take the short walk to get a treat, holding hands the whole way. Last night, we visited with Pappy and Addison suggested we go get some ice cream after dinner. I’ve taken this stroll so many times before and this time felt a little different. This time, as we took a step out into the street a little girl’s voice said “daddy hold my hand”. K reached up and held my hand for the walk. 12 years ago I got ice cream with my love, last night I got ice cream with my family.
