A friend, who had adopted a troubled little boy, was not the most chatty and expressive type of guy... kept his feelings to himself, you know?
But one day I heard them laughing and shouting and went to find out what all the noise was about.
"I love you to the top of the roof!"
"I love you to the top of the roof and to the top of the chimney too!"
Well, I love you to the top of sky..." back and forth laughing and giggling and obviously trying to out 'love' each other.
If you had told me that my friend would ever be shouting out his love for that boy I would have bet you a hundred bucks right there... and lost.
That's the power of of a story.
I got them this Father/Son set of Nut-Brown Hares, and those two rabbits still sit on their beds.
