Life whispers…. listen closely
Yesterday big brother and little brother spent some time together. Boys will be boys and at one point they were yelling at one another while they wrestled. Well, moms will be moms too…so of course I taught them not to yell by yelling at them to stop yelling 🙂
After my smiling reprimand things did get quiet…. too quiet- so after a few minutes I peeked around the corner to check on them.
What I saw melted my heart. My two boys were just being brothers together… talking quietly. The whispers were priceless, but it was the physical connection between them that warmed me to my core. Little brother had both of his hands wrapped tightly around big brother’s paw… It brought me back to the memory of the day little brother was born. Big brother was unsure of what to do with the wrinkly little being we placed gingerly into his arms. So he put his finger out, … and then, just like now, a little hand wrapped around that bigger hand.
Watching them then and watching them now, there is no doubt in my mind, they were meant to be….Brothers through and through.
