The Payoff

I'm finally starting to see all of my hard work and sleepless nights are paying off. I just went into my son's room to remind him to take his meds tonight and what happened next is what I'm talking about. He said "OK Mom" and as I went to close the door he called out to me. I opened the door as he was turning off the video game and he said "I love you". I said "I love you too buddy, is everything OK?" to which he replied "I don't think I tell you enough, and you know-you're not gonna be around forever!" HOW SWEET IS THAT???? O, My GOD! I love that boy with my whole heart and try to raise him to be a kind, loving, compassionate, and productive person and I think he gets it.

I just had to share this tender moment between my son and I with you. He just made this mommas day!!! God is good, and sobriety ROCKS my friends!

Wonderous sentiments dear friend. It's amazing to hear those words from our kids isn't it? Skye once said to me thanks for not giving up on me when I was so horrible. I knew then she got it. We love our kids and they DO see it. (Hugs)Indigo

caring kids make it all worthwhile. Pity we couldn't see how we were hurting them while drunk. I would have stopped sooner if I had thought about it

There is nothing more frightening than raising a child in hopes you are doing a good job. It's so great you are aware of the job you are doing and to see it is paying off.

OH he is so sweet! I swear I love my children more now that they are older.

He sounds like a great kid. I hope that you are around for a long time.

Awww....Queenie....

Almost makes it worth all those godawful hours and hours of labor and childbirth, doesn't it?

Glad to see you back, girlfriend...I've missed you.
