This seems to be the best place to add my teary feelings right now but mine are of absolute joy. My DS2 was a troubled teen, there were nights when I never knew if he would come home or if he would be found dead somewhere. He was always the smallest in his class & this drove him to try everything including drugs & alcohol. He had to prove he was more daring than everyone so took many chances with his life. For some reason that even he can't explain today, most of his anger was directed at me & he was determined to hurt me as much as possible. We made it through those years but rarely discuss them as he is angry with himself for his choices. I have long forgiven him & try to encourage him to do the same as he is an amazing young man today.
His wedding day is fast approaching & he told me today that he had narrowed it down to 3 choices for the mother/son song - they are You're still the one - Shania Twain, Wind beneath my wings - Bette Midler & one unknown to me, A Mother's love - Jim Brickman. He decided on the last one & sent me the lyrics. Always knew the pain & fear of those teen years was worth it, just didn't realize how much they meant to him too. Dee
