I have the best nephews. The kindest, most thoughtful boys EVER! They have so much love and compassion within them, and I must admit that I never want them to view me as their “sick Auntie”. That would just devastate me. But part of me fears they do think this; they are smart, astute, children. They are aware of what’s going on even if we don’t talk about it directly with them. I just don’t ever want then to be embarrassed of me.
Yesterday they were both at my house and I was outside watching them ride their bike and scooter up and down the sidewalk. Nephew #2 wanted me to say “Red light. Green light.” at the proper times. 🙂 It was very cute.
As Nephew #2 came down the sidewalk he brought me the purple flower. Out of the blue. Just like that. Then, as Nephew #1 rode down he brought me the jasmine.
How blessed am I? To be near these little boys who have such big hearts?
