Very few have missed that my sons are my everything. The inspire me. They make me laugh and they are one of the reasons why I am happy. To share their successes and adversities creates an additional dimension of life. One that is not even possible to compare to anything else.
Last night Sam was up for an exam in taekwondo, a blue “stripe” to his green belt. He failed once when he was up for his green belt, and managed the defeat well, therefore I knew that it wouldn’t be the end for him if he didn’t make it (one must not forget that it is important to fail to, just not every time). But he made it, and it was a relief for all of us.
