...all of a sudden you see the values you hold so dear in the hope of raising good people, come shining through like the winter sun.
In a simple gesture, a single moment, you witness the gentle love between brothers, and just like that, you know you're on the right track.
Last night we made pizza and snuggled down to watch 'the life of Pi'. There was the usual niggling over who sat where, who has which cushion, enough blanket and the most leg room...he and I look at each other and we know we're both wondering the same thing...can we do nothing without this incessant banter??
Then suddenly we were all transfixed on the movie and loving every minute. By the end, we were so captivated as the story was revealed, and the little guy had tears rolling down his cheeks as he tried to make sense of the sadness of it all.
His brothers looked at him and felt his hurt. Quietly and without a word spoken, the middle guy reached for a tissue and handed it to his little brother..
And my heart filled to overflowing.
