Today’s Daily Prompt: Precious
Who is the person in your life who can do no wrong? Describe this person and tell us why you hold them in such high esteem.
For this prompt, I have to go with my son. Although he has, and still will, do plenty of wrong, as most pre-teen boys do, he will always remain precious to me. In my eyes, his “wrongs” are never really as bad as they actually are.
Why is he so precious to me?
– He has a true sense of self. He knows who he is and never falters.
– He wakes up every morning with a smile and has done so since the day he was born.
– He cares deeply for everyone and everything. He worries about stray cats left out in the winter as much as he worries about someone being mean to his sister at school.
– He’s funny. He knows how to make me (and plenty of others) laugh out loud when you least expect it.
He may walk a few steps behind me in public, but I know he loves me and I love him, my precious boy. And that’s really all that matters.
