One of THOSE Moments
While he was home visiting I got to hear Son3 talking to Son2 when he said "I think you are the sweetest man I have ever known." Those are pretty powerful words coming from a 22 year old to his older brother, since most 22 year old males tend to be pretty self absorbed and not aware of much beyond themselves. Son2 has the kindest heart of anyone I know and his weekend plans are an example of his nature.
TheHub and Son2 go to every Alabama home game. Like all season ticket holders you get to know the people who sit around you, because they are your Saturday game day buddies year after year after year. (Once you get those season tickets you don't let them go__ever!) The other day Diane (seats next to ours) called and said they were not going Saturday and offered us first dibs on the tickets. Of course we took them and immediately TheHub and Son2 decided was to ask 2 of the differently abled people from Independence Place to go to the game. (TheHub has a pretty fine heart too!)
So Saturday morning will find 2 of my favorite 4 guys headed to Tuscaloosa with 2 very excited young men who would not have had this opportunity otherwise. Not only will they get to go, but they will go with someone who does not see what they can't do, but sees what wonderful gifts to the world they are, and truly relishes being in their company.
My heart is full.
And lest you think I am totally enamored with this fine hearted son, he IS one of the sons who laughed when the dog nearly killed me. Plus in addition to his kind heart he has a wicked sense of humor and I am the butt of it often. He can be a total jerk! Perfect? Not so much, but he truly is a great man. And it is in spite of us, not because of us!
