This morning I started thinking about Halloween. I know, I'm muslim I don't celebrate Halloween. I was just thinking about how the small kiddies look so cute in their costumes. Although I don't celebrate Halloween, I do enjoy seeing the little ones in their costumes. It brought some fond memories back to me.
I remembered when my buddy was about 4 years old, and I was living in the dorms at school. My parents let him stay with me for Halloween. I never thought of how significant this would have been to them. This moment that was solely theirs as parents, and they gave it to me. I got to dress him up in his Winnie-the-Pooh costume. I got to take him trick-or-treating through the dorms where a bazillion college students fawned over him. I was given that moment, and I am SO thankful for it. 9 years ago I got to take that blue eyed cutie all over, stuff him full of candy, and then send him back to my parents!
