My son Tan is a friendly three year old who loves people. So much so, he is quick to hug, stroke or touch others as he hasn't learned "boundaries" yet. He refers to his groups as his "people," as if he does in fact own them, and in his way he does. He operates in this community, as much as the rest of us. He teaches me so much about interacting with our community and I like to remind myself to be sure my boundaries don't become excuses to with hold loving touches from those who need them.
I purchased a gift today on craigslist and the owner brought it to me. Your not gonna get a lot offers from sellers to deliver on a $10 purchase so this was special. The world is full of kind and generous people you can find them everywhere.
One day, Dad and I were chasing down an electrolux vacuum, when we met Morris. He gave us a tour of his home and related the history of it and local things. Longest sale of a vacuum on record. Just kidding. It was the most fun any of the three of us had in awhile and we all said so. Have you ever wanted to check out those bungalows downtown? I had an appointment, so we had to leave sooner than we wanted, so sadly we made unkept promises to return and left. I just have to reiterate it was hands down...most fun purchase of all time and the treat was meeting Morris.
