Best Son Evah

This morn, I dropped Dev off for a full day of work.

Five minutes later, he calls to ask if I can come back. "Are you okay?" I ask. "Yeah, I just need you to come back for a minute, if that's okay."

So in the five minutes it takes me to turn around and head back, my brain runs through hours worth of possibilities: he's been hurt, he forgot his tools, he has to load something in the car, he got his work schedule wrong, he's been let go...

The moment I pull into the parking lot, he jogs outside in the light rain and signals me to roll down the window. He reaches inside to give me a huge hug. "I forgot to tell you I love you, Mom, and I wanted to give you a hug. Thanks for coming back."

Yeah, I drove home all teary-eyed.

If I've done anything right, I hope it has been to teach him resilience. Everything else is possible if one is able to get up (or stagger up) when life deals you a sucker punch. :)

He's a good one. Kind-hearted and strong-willed.
