Are You Happy?

4 years ago

As I was on Facebook yesterday, my youngest son popped open a chat box.  "Momma, are you happy?" was the first thing he typed.  He said he was just thinking of me and worried whether I was happy or not.

Am I happy?  I raised a son who takes the time out of his day to check on me.  How could I not be happy knowing that?  He has grown in to a wonderful man who is empathetic, loving, and kind.  There is nothing more a mother could ask for.

Yes, I'm happy.  To have such a son makes me so.  If I have accomplished nothing else in my life, I have raised a boy who became an incredible man.

And that makes me happy.

Love,
Jerri
