One of Those Moments You'll Never Forget as a Mother

Jackson:  So, in about a year and a half I'll be a teenager.  It seems that in books and on tv, teenagers never listen to their parents and try to break all the rules.  I would never want to do that!

Me:  Yes, that's true about some teenagers sometimes, Jackson.  I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.  You have such a gentle, kind heart and it makes me happy to hear that you want to do right.

Jackson: Thanks, Mom.  But, I'd probably be a bank robber or a backyard bully if it wasn't for you teaching me the right way. 

Me: unable to speak...  To God be the glory.

:-) A bank robber and a backyard bully are pretty much on equal terms! I'm so glad Jackson has such a humble heart too, and such a wonderful mom.
