Date Night with Josh
night's time with Josh (9y) was wonderful. We sat out on the porch
snuggled under blankets watching the rain. As we talked I told him I
never really knew much about my parents' childhoods and asked if he had
any questions about mine. We talked about all sorts of things; when my
parents divorced, the things I got in trouble for, my first marriage to
Josh's biological father at age 19, our divorce,
his being adopted by Papa. We talked about how I didn't even start
learning who I was or what my passions were until my mid twenties. We
talked about what it is to know yourself. Big topics, deep thoughts. It
was a really great night. I'm so glad I made the extra effort to make
that connection with him. It is something I never experienced with my
parents, and I think my young adult life would have been very different
if I had.
