We have two children. One has two legs, has moved out of the house and is beginning his career in NYC. The other has four legs and is best described as being stalwart. I love that word when applied to a family as an organization – it’s one word with so much depth of meaning. The actual definition is a loyal, reliable and hardworking supporter or participant in an organization or team. To really understand the word, look at its synonyms: staunch, loyal, faithful, committed, devoted, dedicated, dependable, reliable, steady, trusty, solid, steadfast or unwavering. The only thing missing is love and that’s certainly not a quality he is missing.
