A Letter To My Boys

This may be the perfect Christmas.

Lots has happened this year - some good, some bad - but in this season of spirituality we have our health, home, and happiness which is more than many others may have.

Your mother and I await the looks of wonderment, as we know you're still just a little too young to comprehend it. For you Christmas is still magical and mystical. By next Christmas you will have wish lists and desire for recognizable toys. This year you'll be delighted with anything, you're just those kind of boys.

In the next few weeks you'll be going away; away to your school for part of the day. The planets have aligned through a strange set of acts to give a short time for the four of us to play. It's our final time to laugh and to play as change is approaching with each passing day. Soon your new brother will arrive on the scene and your parent's attention will be split one more way.

In this festive season you gave us a gift better than any toy. Your magic has infused our life with joy, and soon we will use that to raise one more boy.

So marvel at the presents and play without care..

Your future awaits, but we'll still be there.

among the many things I'm counting good in my life today is the priveledge I have to interact with beautiful people who are made up of all that is good in this world.

may this year show you and your beautiful family nothing but love and laughter but if it should happen to cast some sadness or tears I'll lend you some giggles and a whole mess of hearts to get you all through to the other side :)

happy holidays

I'm all teary-eyed and sentimental now.

I hope you print and sign two copies of your letter and save them for your boys to read when they're grown.

On January 30, my dad will turn 70. He wants Frank and I to go through the trunk of photos and items from our childhood and divide it all up to take home. It won't be easy. There is only one of everything -- one baby album, etc. We can scan the photos, but there are things like our bronzed baby shoes that were mounted together. We'll need a hacksaw!
