Nana Carol and Papa Jim

Every time the boys go to Sean's in Riverside, they get to spend time with Nana Carol and Papa Jim. They live near Joshua Tree. They usually bring the boys home to us, but this time we met them up there instead. Nana Carol works at an animal rescue and let us hang out at the ranch and play with the horses. Some of them were abused, and all except one were friendly and let us pet them. They had one goat, 4 dogs, and a donkey. The donkey had the best personality of all of them. Steveo is a true animal lover. He was gentle with them, and had a lot of fun. Unfortunately, his allergies acted up. Other than that is was so much. I cant wait to do it again. This time we will bring Nick along. (he was staying the night with friends)

Ive never met another soul that is so giving, so loving, and guarded at the same time. Sometimes he holds back his emotions, the way boys sometimes do. I want to always be there to guard his heart and cushion all the blows that life will throw his way. He is wise beyond his years. He is beautiful inside and out. He is thoughtful, he writes me letters, and hugs me when I least expect it. I hope he stays this way forever, but know how cruel life can be. I want him to be strong, I want him to be happy, and do the right thing. I dont ever want him to lose sight of who he is.
I am so truly grateful to have my sons.
