on why i cherish....wrestling?

(my hank is in gold)

the prompt is cherish
and i guess i could describe the
fire in the fireplace
sunrise-over-snowscape
solitude and coffee
that morning has granted
but
my first thought was actually....wrestling?
you see
hank was able to watch his younger brother
for the first time on tuesday
(a pin!)
and then off to the high school for the reverse
(a decision!)
and after hank won
jack slipped down to sit beside him
on the bleachers
and i could see the backs of their heads
side
by
side
talking-not-fighting
a future sight of
brothers-as-friends
and
yes. this i cherish.

  1. I LOVE that you chose to write of wrestling instead of the usual things that may accompany such a prompt!!! I love even more what you see and described between your two boys.

  2. Oh, yes! I like how your thoughts on cherished turn to wrestling bring your boys together. Those are precious, cherished moments!

  3. I love that brothers as friends. My two men have just figured out how to annoy each other. We had one of our first screaming matches between the two of them over the younger's tablet and the time not being correct on it. I can't wait to see the evolution from frenemies to friends.

  4. I always feel as though it's the little things - like a wrestling game - that mean the most. :-)

  5. I have two all-grown-up sons...and yes, I understand. There are few things more precious than when I see my boys have one of those *friends* moments.

    GOD BLESS!
