Last week, I had my brother come over and watch the younger children for a few minutes while I picked up Mr. One from preschool. Not only did he come over willingly, but he volunteered to stay a bit after we returned and play a few games with them. Mr. One was having a particularly rough day, so my sweet 19 year old brother, scooped him up, hugged him and talked to him for a good amount of time to encourage and help him feel better. We need more young men like this. We need more hugs and encouragement. We need a cool uncle to listen. If we all had that, the world would be a lot better place.
Love is taking a few minutes out of a busy schedule to scoop up a nephew and let them know you care.
