Two Sons: Two People

I have two sons who are two completely different kinds of people. We love them both and talk to them daily though they are both out of the house. One calls when things are going well but when things are not going well we hear from him less. The other calls when things are going bad so it is almost a good thing when we hear from him less. One always worries about others and how they feel but he worries too much. The other worries very littel about anything and is sometimes unfeeling towards others. One chases his dreams regardless of the cost. The other fears chasing his dreams might cost himself or others too much. One drives a pickup and will probably never like anything else. The other drives a four door sedan that is more like retirees drive and has a bond with his ride. One owns nice clothes, ties etc. The other has maybe one pair of khakis and absolutely zero ties or nice dress shoes. One considers his religion as more of a "it is between you and God" kind of idea. The other believes in very fundamental ideas and worries that others might not being doing the right thing.
Maybe it is because we never pushed them in a certain direction but encouraged them to make thier own decisions regarding what they would do as they grew up.
They both love their father and mother which is nice. They know we want them to live their own lives but that they are always welcome in our home. It will be interesting to see what the next 20 years hold. In any case I look forward to the future and embrace it.
