My child I wish for you two things…

To give you roots

To give you wings

I remember this saying often as it has been an evident desire in my sister and brother in law’s parenting…

I have loved watching them as parents nurture the roots and in the later years invite their wings…

These pictures show just a bit of Henry’s roots and wings…

Henry’s Graduation Video, June 2, 2013

henry and graceHis kindness and tenderness….

His being all boy and being gentle man…

I know he is not my child but I am a very lucky aunt who has been invited to watch him grow and participate in his upbringing….

My heart is full of gratitude for this very cute, very handsome, very tender boy!

If you have four minutes, please enjoy the video of a young boy growing his roots and earning his wings!
