My son just finished his college spring break. He didn't get to go any place exciting, but he spent the week at home.
What he did for others: He volunteered at my school, helping with the middle school PE classes. I found out yestserday that he also talked to some of the kids about high school and the classes they should take and going on to college.
What he did for himself: He rested. He spent time with friends, some who were also home on break and some high school seniors. He worked on class work so that he was prepared to go back.
What he did for his brother: He was present. That is enough for The Boy.
What he did for Ridley, his cat: He brought his smell back into the house.
What he did for me: He brought laughter and smiles and tormenting and hugs and conversation and activity and so much more.
He has returned to college. It was hard to have him leave. I will miss him. He brings so much to the home when he is here.
