This goes to Soule Mama's This Moment - though I don't know if it counts, as I need to say the words.
my favorite moment this week occurred here.
we were sitting out on the rose patio, playing games, and soon enough much hilarity ensued.
such a beautiful thing.
how awed I was to see my son bring such uncontrolled, helpless laughter to his sister's spirit. just because it pleased her.
over and over and over again he indulged her so that she could go on with this moment forever.
there were a few gifts for me in in that moment, too.
I got a glimpse into the most intimate parts of their relationship - the parts that will probably not be recognized or considered until they are long into adulthood.
I got to feel like what it means to be Them - this eight-year-old boy and his sister, and this little girl and her brother.
and, surprisingly, I got to see something of my son's bared spirit. I got to see a part of him that is so intrinsically Him - a something that can only have been there since the beginning of time, and something that he shall continue to Be for always - just because it is his Self.
and beautiful and wise.
