Our youngest commemorates another year and the goal is to find a way to communicate and keep it real. Hoping these exchanges signify a desire to be close and know each other truly. Always a gamble as your offspring mature and plan their next chapter-beyond the scope of home and family. Nothing wrong there-all par for the course. Still, I wax nostalgic for when he was younger and our lives were more entwined. Sweet times I'll long cherish and remember.
