What is it? Do you know? I suppose it’s different for everyone since we are all a little different…I know one thing up to this point in my life, being around my son makes me happy. It’s a secure, mellow, warm, loving happiness. I had been counting the minutes until I picked him up at the airport on Wednesday night. I hardly was focused at my job, I hardly thought about Thanksgiving with other family members, this week I was living FOR Josh. He’s 18 now. He’s away from home for the first time. Our relationship has changed now. It will never be once it was. One thing I know is he is special. He attracts goodness and in turn he is happy too.

When I worked at a different place where the company focused on the employees becoming better individuals today than yesterday, there was a mantra that went like everything you have done in your past has prepared for you this exact moment now…That’s how I felt on Wednesday night when I met the boy at the airport. All the love and boundary setting, new experiences, jokes, comfort, late night worrying, discipline, though not much, prepared me for that moment. He was happy, mature, caring and he got HIMSELF to the airport, no help from me, and made it home safe and sound.
Here’s a picture of us at the gate on Wednesday night…

That created happiness too,I felt accomplished.


So with all of that said, I’ve been happy this week. Be gentle yourself, you are a VIP.
