It is a word that has much meaning in our lives and in our society...
for me and my family right now, it is the pure joy in my children's voices.
"Mom, she's here!"
"Mom, I'm going out for a walk to see who is out in the neighborhood so that we can play"
They had this when they were very young, but for the last 8 years, it has been a task to call and make a "date" with their little friends, find them a ride or drive them there ourselves, and then going back for them, or having someone pick up their child from our house.
Now, it seems like they are little birds that have just found their wings and
are already experts at flight!
It makes it so enjoyable to be here.
