RAD miracles do happen.

Bear: Could I talk to you about some things mom? (never asks this)

Me: Sure.

Bear, with shaking voice: I've been thinking about my life and it is really a mess. Can you help me fix it? I need your help.

Me: Of course Bear. All you need to do is open your heart and let me in.

Bear: I am mom. I love you. Sobbing. Giving a big real hug.

Me. Sobbing. Giving a real big hug.

Lots of sobbing. Lots of hugging.

Bear: Mom your choking me. I can't breathe.

Me: Sorry Bear.

It has been 10 long hellish years. Healing has begun. It is real. It is deep.

Very touching - and funny - "You're choking me mom." That's not going to build trust if you choke the kid when he comes in for a hug.

I read today's (Thursday's) post as well. It all makes sense. The poor children of the world who feel as if there is no safe place to land.

I want a hug now. Will somebody please hug me!!?!!
