Evening Fun

Theo and I went for a relaxing walk around the neighborhood after I got off of work tonight.  On the way home, we ran into Hans coming back from the skate park and he promptly put his little brother on his skateboard and took him the rest of the way home.  It is so wonderful to see the two of them have so much fun together.  I believe that Theo opens up Hans’ heart and Hans opens up Theo’s heart every time they see each other.  They both just melt into one another.  

It boggles my mind that I have a family of my own at times.  I had a great talk with both my brother, Mark, and my sister, Beth, today.  It made me so thankful that I have siblings that I can relate to in terms with our family of origin issues.  It is comforting to know that even if we fought as children and even as adults, we disagree at times, but we can find commonalities to connect us and subsequently be better able to deal with hard times then we could separately.  I am so thankful that my sister and brother are in Dallas to help watch out for my parents.  And in turn, my sister said it was good to have me afar, so I can give a different perspective when I come to town.  As painful as this last trip was for me, good things have sprung from it and I will continue to nurture those pearls.  Peter, my husband, was a rock for me and continues to support me to move through hurt and despair, on into the light.  I am lucky to have him in my life.

Hans is growing into a young man so quickly.  One minute, he was a little boy lost inside a big school in Boulder.  Now he is a gorgeous, talented, vivacious young man who is finding out who he wants to be as an adult.  He can fly with that skateboard, that is for sure.  I am also lucky to have Hans in my life.  He has taught me many things, but most importantly, he has taught me how to love unconditionally.
