Flash 55-Moments Matter

A thank you card acknowledged what we hoped to achieve after many years of loving and angry words, sometimes all in the same sentence. A boy grew to be a man who finally understands what we were fighting for. Today, opportunity knocks at his door. We are thrilled and thankful, today and for a lifetime.

It is Flash Friday--if you can tell a story in 55 words, then go see the g-man. Happy weekend to all!

You speak to my heart as a mother. I so hope and pray for a sign that what my teenager is putting me through will be worth it.
