Tonight Ryan was sitting on the bed so big and strong with very little support. I tried to grab the camera and just as I was ready to snap the camera, he pushed back and laid down. Oh, really? I missed it.

So, I tried to sit him up again and he squawked at me. I finally convinced him to sit up for just one pick picture. "Please, Ryan, let Mommy take just one picture." So, he complied. So big and strong...
As soon as I took the picture I said, "Oh, I got it." And, since Ryan obviously felt he had fulfilled his obligation, he immediately pushed back and laid down.

Thank you, Ryan. I know it's a lot of work. I'm so proud of you for being so strong!

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.
