Tonight was my son’s 13th birthday. We adopted him when he was 4 1/2 years old, so it’s not a day for me to take any credit.
While I was buying him his first cell phone for his gift, somehow I bought myself an iPhone too.
My first email on my new iPhone? Some wisdom from my sweet husband:
If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way.
If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.
So true! People ask me how to hug a loved one that’s far away, or a prickly teen, or someone who doesn’t like to be touched. They tell me they’ve just given up. Then I hear wonderful stories, about care packages sent, favorite sandwiches left in work trucks, and other examples of “hugs.” Find a way to hug the ones you love.
