One of my sweet sons....

I was looking at Facebook this morning and I saw this from my son Aaron....
Oh my gosh, I'm tearing up again.....

"Some say I am a mamma's boy, to them I say....YEP!  My mother has always been there for me.  Whether I was making huge mistakes or choosing the right, she would be there to lend guidance.  Even now, as a grown man, (physically at least) she is still sacrificing whatever it takes to help out.  If she was poor she would lend her last dollar.  If she was rich, she would ensure I understood hard work.  When my father leaves much to be desired, my mother is there with love, understanding, charity, and guidance.  I am so lucky to have such a loving mother.  If anyone were to say I am a successful man, it was my mother's soft words that made me become that man.  If anyone were to say I am a failure, it is because I didn't listen to my mother's soft words.  I love you Mom!"

Awwwwwwww! There is something special about a son's love for his mama. They are usually so reserved about it all, which makes it extra special when they say something like this.

Oh Susan! What a wonderful young man you have raised to be able to see the mother's love you have obviously given him through the years.
