It’s been a busy month for me so far (I know, it’s only the beginning of March)! My son flew into
for a long weekend (just to visit) and it’s been wonderful (though by the time
you read this, he’ll be back home in )
and it will once again, be quiet in my house. Still, I love spending time with
my son. Like his father, he makes me laugh. Texas
What amazes me the most though, aside from making me laugh, is how much like his father he is. Same stance (when they stand side by side, you really notice it…they could be brothers instead of father and son), same laugh, same speech patterns, same sh**―excuse me― mischievous grin! And they both have a tendency to get loud! Really loud, like they’re yelling across miles even when they’re in the same room.
It has always been this way. Even when my son was younger (I think this is inherited….my DH’s family was loud, but in a good way)!
For as much as he is like his father, he’s also very much like me. He can be incredibly soft-hearted and compassionate (which he tries to hide, though those who know him well see it). He loves children (as do I) and we share of fondness for scary movies and slapstick comedy―the scarier and sillier, the better.
The other thing that astounds me (and makes me proud) is how much he has grown into a wonderful man and loving husband (did I influence this? I hope so). He’s no longer the little boy I held in my arms and rocked in the rocking chair and hasn’t been for quite some time, but I remember those days quite fondly. And apparently, so does he.
Like I said before, it’s been a wonderful visit. I so enjoy his company!
Until next time, remember to spread kindness wherever you go. A smile can go a long way in making someone's day!
