My oldest son is 19 and fairly conservative with his affection. He is in college and not living here, but he’s home for the holidays right now. I miss him when he’s gone and it’s great to have him home, even if most of his time is spent with his friends. Today I took his brother and sister to the movies and had a really nice time. Once the movie ended, I checked my phone and saw a text from Eric that said “I love you Mom”. My heart melted.
He loves me 🙂
And I didn’t even have to give him anything to get the sentiment. I replied and told him I love him too…and then as an afterthought asked what brought on the unsolicited message.
His response…”My friend stole my phone and sent that.”
Bubbles bursting all over the place…
And then another message…”But I do love you.”
I’ll take what I can get.
