I am my brother’s keeper

These boys teach me about compassion. They already know how to love, even if such a concept is much too abstract for them to truly grasp. They know when one another is hurting or sad. They have empathy and understand how to comfort each other, even how to comfort us (parents). They are practical and know what it takes to disagree then get over it. They are working through conflict resolution (sometimes better than some adults I know—present company included). And when I find myself worrying about keeping them close, teaching them they have each other, showing them empathy and the capacity for love—I am reminded they already know…they already know. #love
