Mica is very independent. He's the type that thinks he can handle everything on his own. Except when it comes to getting food. Then he's like, "I'm hungry. Can you get me something to eat?"
Isaak likes a buddy. Isaak has cried a few times because he didn't want to be "alone" when he grows up. He wants to live with us the rest of his life. At this point in his life it's ok to think that in my book. He'll change his mind later.
Isaak wrote this letter for Mica before Christmas:
"frim" = "from"
Isaak handed it to Mica. I heard Mica accept it. Then later Isaak handed me the letter and said, "Mica doesn't want this. Do you?" I took it.
It melted my heart. Family is so important to me. I want them to be close forever and always. They are their only siblings.
Daddy's not close with his sister, but I'm really close with mine.
It breaks my heart that Daddy is not close with his only sibling. It's not like the fight. They just don't communicate. It is what it is.
Some people only want to hang with who is in their life at that moment of time. All others are not bad, just simply not part of their life. They push them away.
Sure there are times I don't see eye to eye with my sisters. We always make a mends. Soon after we argued about something, we're back to laughing. We're not perfect. No one is.
My Dad (Grandpa to the boys) grew up with a Dad (Great Grandpa to the boys) that wouldn't talk to his brother (Great Uncle to the boys). The two grown men fought over farm land. My Dad would go and visit each one separately clear into adulthood. He wouldn't talk about seeing one, with the other.
My Grandpa was a Christian Scientist. They don't believe in going to the doctor. My Grandma died shortly after having my Dad. When she passed away, a police man was called because someone knew her parents would want my Grandpa harmed at that funeral. If he took her to the hospital she may not of died. At a young age my Dad would take the bus to go see his Mother's side of the family. He was so young, and he had many stops before he got to his destination. His Mother's family didn't even know he was coming, or what he looked like. They accepted him. They had nothing good to say about my Grandpa.
We've had our family feuds.
My only hope is that Mica and Isaak will see how very important family is to me. They will have that common link. I hope for them to stay close as they get older. I know all kids bicker. Many change as they age.
It seems like society progresses in some ways, and degresses in others. I feel like the newish generation is more open minded than ever. Sometime other things get in the way that tear people apart (drugs, depression, steeling and so on). Those outside demands can break up relationships.
I'm hoping my children don't fight over something silly. I hope they realize how important they are to one another. Life is too short to let distance, or fighting over farm land to get in the way.
Do you get along with your family?
