Things are running a lot more smoothly than they were yesterday.
This morning was completely different, No tears, no tripping, no "lopsided hair", no drama. I think I'm getting the hang of this.
Last night after studying with my younger sister, signing some permission forms and helping her with a great deal of homework. (I don't remember having had that many assignments at her age!) Amber and I lay in my parent's bed and just chatted together most of the night. She told me about all the dramas in her school, the gossip about her teachers and friends, Her favorite movies, her favorite music, games, and we were both laughing.
The concerns of a ten year old are kind of refreshing to get lost in. It's like stepping into a time machine and flashing back to the early 90's and late eighties...
I've been spending a lot of time with my little brother today
Sitting together in the front room while he plays the guitar and just discussing life. I really treasure these moments. It's hard to explain how you don't fully appreciate the company of someone until it's taken away from you for 2 and a half years. After that you're just grateful for every minute.
He learned "Better together" by Jack Johnson because he knows I love that song. I took some pictures this morning of him playing the guitar...
I don't think he realizes how proud I am of him. He's overcome so many odds. It didn't make him a bitter and angry person. He still has the same compassion and understanding in his warm brown eyes.
Eric: Check back in later on tonight, I'm going to post a pic of the new computer for you. I love you...
