I rarely write about my middle child.
My youngest son who so willingly engages, Within in his own silent and peaceful universe.
The universe he’s created to escape the lack of attention he receives from me when ever I’m busy dealing with either the needs of my eldest son or the melt downs of my youngest daughter.
I know sometimes he thinks that I forget to see to him.
That I forget to listen to, or hear him.
Or that I forget to think of him and his needs amidst the daily jungle of our lives.
I’d like to say that he’s perspectives are neither accurate nor true,
I know that sometimes he’s right.
So in order to show him that I do see him,
That I do listen to him and think about him,
His interests and his needs,
I’ll often search the internet for amazing wildlife photos of the animals I know he loves and adores.
He is a child of nature.
And he loves all creatures big and small.
This is his way of coping.
And I love taking the time to see, appreciate and understand the sense of wonder that still exists within his precious soul.
And this is your mother’s way of saying she’s watching over and loving you just as much too <3
I see your true colors,
Even when others don’t!
Love isn’t in your eyes baby girl,
It’s in your heart.
