“I believe in fairy tales, and dreamer’s dreams like bedsheet sails, and I believe in Peter Pan and miracles, anything I can to get by, and fireflies.” ~Faith Hill’s Firefly song2009-Summer Stuff1

The kids like to chase fireflies as the sun shows its last spark of the day.  I can’t think of many things that bring me straight back to the peacefulness of my childhood like fireflies on a summer night with bare feet in the grass and those bugs making that midwest-summer-night-bug sound.  I hope my kids are lucky enough to have such a peaceful memory.  When we watch them chase the fireflies though, I wonder if is it less a memory and more a dream come true.
