Any parent of a pre-teen or teenager longs to share loving, connecting moments with their children. I was lucky enough to experience such a one the other night(or so I thought):
As we were all heading up to bed, one of our teenage sons questioned, "How is it that I use to hate parents, and now I like them?"
My heart just melted. "Us?" I needed to verify this momentous breakthrough with our teenager. "You like US?", I asked.
After the oh-so-familiar 'what in the world is wrong with you?' look from my son, he clarified.....
"I said PEANUTS!"
Oh well, I guess if there was a change of heart for peanuts, perhaps there is hope for "us" too. And it WAS a beautiful moment in my mind!
