I am certain that when my son Nicholas becomes an adult, he will work for Martha Stewart or maybe Steven Spielberg.
Today, I had been distracted and uneasy. We have learned that Pete's father has been admitted into a hospital for dehydration and possible kidney issues. He is 81-years-old and lives in Wisconsin. He has been like a father to me. In my distracted state, I seem to have lost my focus and myself.
But as I came into the kitchen to prepare some lunch for the boys, I am stopped dead in my tracks by my son's latest set building project.
The Halloween extravaganza glows merrily in my kitchen. It has helped to brighten my mood and bring my feet back to the ground.
Once again his calm spirit, his ability to embrace all that is magical, has lightened my spirit and freed me from myself. Sometimes I wonder, just who the teacher really is....in this family?
