Oh how things change! And thank God that things change. You see my best friend Darby's little boy Caden is The Hulk's very best buddy. Caden is so sweet and gentle with The Hulk. He entertains him, makes him laugh hysterically and protects him so well. The Hulk will go anywhere Caden goes and loves watching Caden do all the cool "big boy" stuff. They really do just love one another. It's pretty awesome to watch.
And the other night we were riding in the car together and I looked over and saw this. The Hulk had reached over to hold onto Caden. He just can't seem to ever get close enough to him. And luckily I had my camera and snapped these shots. And my heart swelled. I couldn't help but think how very blessed we are to live now rather than 50 years ago. My little man and Caden would have never been in the same car together back then let alone touched or loved one another.
I'm no Pollyanna. I know we still have leaps and bounds to go when it comes to race relations and discrimination. But I know for a fact big progress has been made. And I can't help but believe that these two little boys and their love for one another will make a difference. I have to believe that friendship, respect, and love will be the only way we continue to break through barriers and make progress. So boys keep holding on. I have a feeling the future will be very bright for the two of you!
