The wet feet of that twelve-year-old as he splashes down the shore running after his brother….

The careful feet of that eighteen year old as he walks up to accept his high school diploma….then his college diploma….
The quiet feet of that twenty year old as he escorts you down the center aisle of the church for his own wedding…….
The heavy footsteps of the adult man as you lay awake in the guest bedroom of his home, and he heads off to work….
