In Their Eyes
When I look into Ty and Cole's eyes I see and feel so many things. I see their imagination, trust, their playful love, their excitement at even the most simple things. I see their sadness when they feel like they have let someone down, their enjoyment when they get praise from a job well done, and also how they study small details and take everything is as if they will never experience certain things again. When I look into their eyes I feel overwhelmed by their unquestionable love, I feel sad that one day they will grow up and I will not be able to "fix everything", I feel ecstatic that one day they will find love, and I feel a nervousness at trying to do everything possible to show them how to live their life in a good honest way... hoping that it will make them wonderful young men one day. When I look into their eyes I feel a warmth that makes me feel at peace with whatever life throws at me, I feel happy that I was so lucky to be blessed with two wonderful children. But really when it comes down to it, all that I can hope and pray for is, when they look into my eyes they can see and feel only one thing....unconditional love.
