Yesterday Epi and I decided to take a walk around the neighborhood with Esteban and get some ice cream. While sitting outside at one of the patio tables a little guy darted past us, kind of acknowledged Epi, and went into the store. Epi called after him to come back and say hi “for real.” “In a minuuuute,” was the response.
When we have youth over to our home, when Epi runs softball leagues or I meet with the girls I mentor we see the beautiful and work to cultivate and help it grow. We battle the negatives though, we step into situations that are hard and can sometimes be scary. Those things are very real.
