Your Impact on My Family

You had a caller recently who decided to re-marry and move across the country, leaving her ten-year-old boy behind.  My eleven-year-old son was listening and was deeply affected by the call, so much so that he asked me why a mom would leave her son.  He then proceeded to say how wrong she was and how he felt sad for the boy.

As we pulled into our driveway, still discussing the call, we got out and he came over to me and gave me a big hug, saying "I'm glad you're my mom!"  With tears in my eyes, I realized your wise words have great impact on us and I appreciate all you do and say.  Thank you!
