Recently, I had the privilege of watching a friend’s daughter take her first steps in growing to become an independent young lady. Said daughter is about 8/9 years old and of course has been and still is under the protective wings of eagle-eyed dad!
We had just come out from church and on our way to the car park, when dad remembered he had planned to buy his kids some McDonalds.

To be honest, I can’t remember what triggered the thought process that led to this post.
