A few weeks ago,
I was going about my business at home -
laundry, cooking dinner...
and Conner, my 12 year old,
came up behind me and gave me a BIG hug!
He needs lots of hugs all day long -
so I stopped what I was doing,
and gave him a BIG hug back.
Kinda thinking this is his normal -
school was hard,
socializing is even harder,
striving for straight A's is all consuming.
He then looked at me,
"For what?" I asked.
And with tears welling up in his eyes,
"For never giving up on me."
And then the hug fest was on!!!
Just a reminder -
don't give up on our kids -
no matter how difficult day-to-day issues can be.
They need us!
we need them!
I am truly blessed to be able to call him son!
