A father and his adult son sitting on a park bench . . .

A tip of the hat to Michael G for passing this video along. It’s magnificent. Take five minutes to enjoy, please. You’ll be glad you did.

    Oh. My.

    I had to share that on my blog. So poignant for those who have/are parenting our parents.

    The two situations are not the same, though. The adult son fights against the loss, not the question, and the father of the toddler rejoices in the awakening. For one it is beginnings, for the other, endings.

    Spoken very wisely, Susan. Clyde

    Less is more. This communicated so much in so little time. Stirring questions and emotions. I watched this video right after watching Ted Kennedy’s funeral. I didn’t agree with his politics and he made some bad choices in life but like the rest of this he also did good as well. He was deeply loved by his family and lots of people in MA.

    Life is short. Our parents will not always be with us. Between my husband and I we have 3 parents still living. My mother is the oldest of the 3.
