So sweet

Sometimes when I am supporting and hanging out with someone, I have the joy of being not only a part of their lives but making a super close connection. You know, the super sweet occurrences that you have with your children that nobody else really understands or sees the full significance of. A child or young adult sometimes chooses me to be a witness to it or be a part taker.

The other day I went to visit a family just to sign some forms for them. It was going to be really quick as it was on my way home. When I got in, I sat at the dining room table where all the kids were sitting and began to small talk with them. The child I support signs and knows when I show up, we are going out. He signed “what are we doing.” I told him I was just there to do something for mom and then was going. He thought for a second and signed, “stay!” His mom confirmed, “you want Marjorie to stay for a bit?” To which he shook his head once, with conviction. So I hung out for a bit, with him and his siblings.

Him asking me to hang out was a sweet gesture and we had a really nice time together. I think I will do it again soon. I will also try to make visiting a part of my evening for my clients, it only takes half an hour and made me really happy.
