Inspiring Sunday

They say that what comes out of the mouth of children is almost always the truth...
even to the point of brutal honesty...or in this case
the pure meaning of love!

I have a very thoughtful, caring Son.  He knows how to "push my buttons" but he also knows how to warm my spirit and soul, bringing out a smile that radiates from deep inside me, knowing that this is my Son and how proud I am to say that I am privileged to be his Mother.

The other day we were playing tennis...he was in his class, I was playing with three other ladies.
He knows my tennis...he often beats me at the end of my class when he joins in!

So, this was the day when he had had a disagreement with one of his good friends.  He was quite upset because this friend is leaving in a few weeks to live in Dubai.
We talked a lot about it.  I was very gentle with his emotions and tried to support him as best as I knew how.

And this is what I received as a form of thank you:

After I left the tennis court, he walked up to me with one of these flowers in his hand and said:
Here, Mom, this is for you because you are always a winner to me.

and the tear came, my smile widened and I felt so lucky to call him my Son

That is so sweet BG. My boys come home from college this Friday. The great thing about boys is that they love love love their Moms:)

That looks like a passion flower. Is it?

My youngest is 28, and he is still my little kid, even though he is living his own life,and is a "man" now...I guess this is just what being a mom or dad is.... : )

A tender-hearted boy becomes a tender-hearted man. A wonderful thing...and I speak from experience. I rejoice with you.
