The Ties that Bind

I hadn't seen my son in a year, he's been traveling the country, working. But when he came into town Thursday, seeing him, hugging him, spending time with him this weekend, made me realize how easy family are together. We picked up as if no time had passed at all, I cooked dinner last night while he watched sports and played around on my computer, on MySpace. I had to laugh. I don't know what I expected, my thoughts about how things would be before he got here seemed as if I were preparing for a guest. However, even though he is 28 and has a family, it was like he was back in high school, me the mom and him the kid. It was comforting, and I smiled as I fell asleep last night, hearing his voice in the living room, on the phone, of course. :)
