This summer has been relaxing and useful. I have been able to look at myself and my life and make some decisions that should help.
My Isaac amazes me. Not too long ago he went through something that brought out the mother tigress in me. I wanted to fight to keep it all from him. I wanted to protect him and was willing to take on the world. Who knew that I would have been protecting him from his better self? He is calm and focused and driven and kind. He still has the energy and arrogance of youth but it has been tempered and he has direction. To see a boy become a good man is miraculous. Parents just do their best and keep talking and when it sinks in it is truly astounding. ...or was it even something that I said??..
