"Thanks Mom"

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,
and said,
"Thanks Mom."

"For what?" I asked.

And with tears welling up in his eyes,
he answered,
"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!
