The Beauty of Friendship

Yesterday in the van, Matthew was talking about his two best friends:  his cousin, M; and his friend, I.  Looking out the window, he sighed, then said:  "I hope that the chains that tie us together never break."

And, seconds later, this:  "I really love them, Mom."  And I believe he does.

Quintessential, thoughtful, sentimental, loving, philosophical...Matthew.


  1. That's so cute. Matthew sounds like such a sweet boy.

  2. What an honest,sensitive boy Matthew is! I love how little boys are unafraid to express love. At what point in their lives do they lose that? What (or who) causes them to stop being vulnerable, to stop crying, to stop expressing? I pray our little ones never grow out of that.
