You're awesome Ted .. and Ari loves you heaps
Ted and Ari were playing near a hollow stump when Ted started to build with bits of sticks and tan bark. He was very focused and intent with each piece he added. Ari was really taken and sat on the other side of the stump and watched ... mostly just bathing Ted with silent love and appreciation, the whole time this was taking place.
Ted narrated what he was doing for a little bit. Ari asked the odd question and said a little too. Mostly though, this was the most beautiful expression of care and friendship. Ari had so much room in his heart for Ted to create and build while he just sat with him in appreciation and love. Ted was feeling it and it was like food for the creative process he was in ... it seemed it just felt so much more special being witnessed and appreciated. In the end, both boys joyous and triumphant.
