Acccepting Our Color

This happy boy just visited his most favorite place on earth. Besides home of course.

The train museum.

He worked all week to come here. Three good days at school and voila here we are.

He happily looked at the trains.

He anxiously looked at the magazines hoping they’d have ones he likes. This train conductor has no time for Model Railroader.

He picked out 7 postcards and a DVD.

He wore his mask.

He pushed a button to make Thomas go around the track.

And then it was time to wait. Waiting is really hard. I don’t care who you are.

Hugs from dad got him through while mom paid. But not before his color came out.

Long ago, before, before I truly understood the most important parts of life, I used to measure our days by his struggles.

The loud, icky, uncomfortable parts screamed louder than the happy ones. They left their mark long after our days were over. They kept me up at night. Often wondering why and how and what.

Not anymore.

Because what’s a day without color.

It was a good trip.

He is happy.

Next week he’s working for a fire station. Or maybe to put the Christmas Tree up. Never a dull moment in our world.

Twin City Model Railroad Museum thanks for the hospitality and accepting our color. We appreciate it. And we will be back!
