Daily Inspiration: Boys Will Be Men

He is tall, dark and handsome. Smart, funny, and successful. He’s warm and loving; showing affectionate whenever she needs it. Leslie’s grown son is a mother’s dream come true.

It’s a funny thing how the relationship between a mother and son gets even better with age.  When they’re little boys they’re made of slugs and snails and puppy dog tails.  Twenty-some birthdays later they change into men; men who love and appreciate their mothers.

Leslie feels blessed. Jason lives close by and she gets to share his life. It started right after the black hole that was his life between 16 – 24 years old.  Somehow with the grace of God, he went from wayward son, to good son. He found a job, cut back on the partying, and became responsible.

The mutual admiration society was formed. Leslie and Jason are charter members. They talk as equals when discussing politics, business, or news of the day.  When Leslie lost her job, typical roles were reversed and Jason became her support.  When Jason’s and his wife were having fertility problems, it was Leslie who comforted him through his frustration.    

Healthy relationships evolve over the years. Maybe your mother-son experience is different; it’s sad and you’re disappointed. But it’s still your story, and you’re not finished writing it yet.  Be sure you fill the inkwell with patience and understanding.

There’s a special bond between a mother and her son. Celebrate it, enjoy it, and thank God for boys who grow up to be men.
