It’s the smallest things that people or your own children say or do when you are sad or overwhelmed and they feel helpless…
Yesterday, I was driving my son George home. I’d had a rough day, and had just finished a frustrating call with a doctor. As I bit my lip, trying to hold back the tears, he gently put his hand on my shoulder and said,”You know, Mom, I had really good fries at school today.”
I smiled through my tears and replied, “Really? Were they fat, skinny or curly?”
He said, “Skinny, with enough girth; they were good.” Then he asked, “How about one of our favorite songs. Which one?”
I said, “Your choice.”
He chose Lean on Me. We blasted it and sang all the way home.
XXOO Thx, G
