Last night, out of the blue, Graham taught me how powerful just a few carefully-chosen words can be.
"Mommy, you are my very best friend."
And I felt my eyes well and my heart swell and I gently kissed his forehead.
"What a nice thing to say sweetie, thank you."
And Graham smiled sweetly in return.
"You're welcome mommy. You are my very best friend because you are really pretty and also, you almost never say damnit."
Oh yes he did.
Last night Graham taught me that Mommy needs to choose her words just a little more carefully.
