Lifelong Friends

This weekend I watched you freely choose to go out of town with family instead of staying home with friends.  You attended four baseball games to cheer for brother #2 and his teammates.  You played card games with brother #3, letting him win and making him laugh.  You verbally sparred with brother #1 with good humor.  You found ways to include all the siblings in fun.

Little makes me happier as a mom than to see you all happy together.  These relationships will likely be the longest of your lives, bridging childhood and adulthood.  When you choose to invest your time into these relationships, to sacrifice for each other, and to enjoy being together, you are building a strong foundation for a great future.    

This weekend I watched you freely choose to go out of town with...lifelong friends.
