Boys who are scrappy. Who are a bit rugged. Who know how a transmission works. Who can play a decent game of pool. Who can catch a fish. Who can throw a ball. Who can jump a fence.
Who love movies and music with all of their hearts. Who can quote literature. Who can dress themselves. Who don’t get distracted by gossip or popularity contests. Who don’t run with the crowd. Who know when to stand out. Who know when to observe. And when to speak up.
Who are sturdy of mind. Who can tell a good joke. Who can smile at the end of a long day. Who are tender and a bit vulnerable. Who are confident and secure.
Thank God for boys.
