I think — we just write from the heart.
I have two brothers out of the five who are young fathers… I cannot tell you how many times I have had to intervene, calm a situation down, or want to break my foot off in someone’s hind-end for them to GET IT as our father did not in his younger days.
I appreciate them coming to me when they do, as I am the oldest, but it pains me to know their struggles, especially when I often feel that I cannot do anything but continue to support and love them. I imagine it has to be such a hard row to hoe learning how to be something that does not come with much-needed tools or a manual, but they are doing the damn thing and I am proud of them.
The moment they choose to step out on their responsibilities is the moment that I will hem them up and make them remember their most important priority, but I do not think that’ll happen. They have good hearts.
Thank you for reading and connecting too. I am with you — I have enough children around me to mother, I believe God knew what he was doing not granting me any of my own. Peace, Interculturalisticman.
