Tonight I took Jacob to buy new shoes. He needed them. Desperately. His big toe was rubbing the ground. I'm thankful for a young man whose only concern was whether or not I could afford to buy him a new pair of shoes.
As we were driving home the HOT donuts light was on at Krispy Kreme. Of course, I did what any good mother of a growing teenage boy would do. I stopped immediately to go in to get our free hot donut. (Did you know that my favorite Krispy Kreme is actually the original glazed donut?)
While we were there the lady asked if we would like to donate $1 to the Komen foundation for Breast Cancer. I said I would donate a $1. Then Jacob asked if I would take a dollar out of his account to donate also. They gave us a sheet to write a message or our name. On Jacob's sheet, he simply wrote, "No more cancer."
I love that boy.
