two seeds in the same pot

They were planted in the same pot.

The American suburb pot. The poor as church mice pot. The very young parents pot. The hand-me-down EVERYTHING pot.

They clung to each other when they were uprooted and moved to a new pot, halfway around the world.

And now they are growing in the same pot again. The TCK pot (Third Culture Kids). The get-stared-at-and-touched-everywhere-they-go pot. The missing their homeland pot.

And together, as always, they are thriving.
