My Sonshine is 13.10. I am so grateful to have a close relationship with him and be able to share important and mundane moments in his life. Today is the annual Thanksgiving Feast at his school. I will go to enjoy lunch with him. There are times I am not certain he notices how I value our time or if he wants me to take part in these events. This morning my heart melted and I don't even think he realized.
Me: I look forward to the Thanksgiving Feast with you today at lunch.
Sonshine: Me too mom.
Me: I am grateful I get to attend so many of your events.
Sonshine: You've only missed two since I was born. But were both sick the day of my Halloween party in the second grade so that one doesn't count.
He does notice.
