My youngest was sick all last week. One day my oldest came home with a letter he had written for his brother. He waited my youngest was asleep and then placed the letter in front of his door so that when my youngest woke up it would be the first thing he saw. My oldest wrote about how much he loved my youngest, and that he didn’t want him to be sick, and gave my youngest an extra day to sit in the middle at the island (a big deal around here).
As I watched my oldest put all of this together I was actually moved to tears. Even though there are plenty of moments my boys make each other crazy there are also moments like this. Where they express incredible love for one another. I’m so blessed to have a son that is so nurturing and loving to his brother!
