No Matter The Age

Yesterday morning as I left work, my son was actually awake.  Mondays are his day off and he is usually sound asleep when I leave.

As I was preparing to leave, he said, "No, Mom...stay with me today!"  That is when I realized that it does not matter if your child is a grown man or a toddler...when they ask you to stay with them, it is a gut punch.  

If I could have, I would have stayed home.  My son wanted me with him, and even though he is 24, he needed me and I wanted to stay.  

You never stop being a mother.  He could be seventy years old, say the same thing, and I would have the same reaction.  What greater blessing is there?
