Brothers by Blood, Friends by Choice

I’m not sure if I got the old saying right in the title of this post, but it is what I have always hoped for my boys. I hope their relationship goes far beyond just gathering a few times for holidays or celebrations. I hope they want to spend time together.

Recently, I started Elias on a journal. It is part of his responsibility chart each day, and the format is easy enough that he can do it independently. (Although he does ask for help sometimes). He just has to answer one question each day. Yesterday my heart was filled to the brim with his journal entry.
