Colorado Springs deserves its own post as we got to see and spend time with our nephew whom we consider one of our “Boys, one of our Sons”.
It’s been a little over a year and a half since we’ve seen him. He is proudly serving in the United States Army….he is following his boyhood dream!
We have been a part of his life since he was 4. Our families were inseparable and did everything together for years. We have watched him grow, watched him struggle and been there every step of the way. His parents struggled with their marriage and our house was no longer just a place to go, it turned into his home.
Sadly, his father passed away in 2010 but my husband had always told Uncle Mark that we’d take care of his boy if anything ever happened and that’s what we’ve gladly done even before that tragic day. Sure do love this boy whom has become a man!! We are his “family” that loves him unconditionally……we have laughed with him, cried with him, scolded him and hugged him tight.
I know that this post doesn’t really say much about Colorado Springs but I can tell you that it is a huge city way bigger than I had imagined. I learned that there’s not just an Army base but there’s an Airforce Base too. We walked a little downtown but spent the majority of the little bit of time we had having dinner and enjoying our time with Tucker before having to head back down the road to the next destination!
For now this is all I have on Colorado Springs….we should be back on our way home in a couple of weeks but if not for sure the end of September…..So until next time, “See you soon”, Colorado Springs and Tucker!!
Love Un-Conditionally…..Family, Friends…our Loved Ones are NOT always biological, they are not always blood and they are not always even related by marriage. Everyone just wants to be loved and accepted for who they are. YOU…ME…WE can make the difference to someone by just caring, by being kind or even a little harsh when necessary. Love is free to give, kindness is free to give, smiles and laughter are free to give, hugs are free to give…..make the difference to someone but ask for NOTHING in return. Just show some unconditional love once in awhile and I know you’ll be a little happier on the inside. Thanks for reading my thoughts……..Robin Robinson
