Weekly Photo Challenge: Mine
Those two little boys in the picture fill my life with brightness and laughter and meaning. No, I don't possess them. I don't feel jealousy over the relationships they have with others--my mother, my husband, their teachers. I have always felt like they were little beings who came to live with us so we could keep them safe and teach them how to be good, productive young men. But, I love them with a protective intensity that supersedes anything else in my life. They are my family, they are my children, they are mine.
