These are the moments that make it all worth it.

When the days are long and my giving body

can’t keep up with the sun like she used to.

You settle into the beginning of quiet time

and the boy who always has one more question…

“Mom?  Can I go downstairs and get the world map?

I’m gonna teach John everything I know.”

You can’t say no to that.

You can’t help but want to watch and listen, quietly, of course.

Hush now, this is holy ground.

These are secrets only brothers share.
