Mischief…

20151128_092141…and it begins….

I am reminded each morning… from the first shout echoing down the stairs… to the evening strolls…pointing out the moon… the way they follow each other… fight…play…giggle….hug…. misbehave.. The faint beams of light from flashlights casting shadows throughout the house as the sound of their shouts and stomping feet follow… I am afforded a glimpse into future mischief.

I  have a new journey… a journey of culture… of faith… of two little boys… of binasarati prema… their journey….

….of words that only the two of them will know…phrases…hints of their Mother’s special secrets lovingly whispered at bedtime…at meals… during discipline…  cultural festivities and holy days…. long Indian movies… beautiful prayers.

…pitching tents and carrying backpacks…rolling in leaves… evenings spent on a distant brow just to watch God darken a sky…  listen for His words… His guidance…

…. of being taught compassion… and character… kindness… learning to hear a voice that is bigger than theirs…finding comfort in giving their best…to others… and knowing that there is no alternative to doing good…

…. of embracing their heritage… understanding who they are… who they are to each other… the strength in their likenesses…and differences… what they share…and how very much they are loved…
