In Conversation

A comment from Matthew last night, while I was lying down with him to help him relax enough to get to sleep:

Matthew:  "Mom, I think we've built our relationship to the very top, don't you think?"

Me:  "What do you mean when you say 'to the very top'?

Matthew:  "It means we've done our best; I understand you, you understand me; we're doing all right together."

Me:  "Well, then, yes, I would have to agree that we've built our relationship to the very top.  Absolutely.  And I hope we keep finding new ways to push the ceiling up."

Matthew:  "Good. Love you Mom."

Me:  "Love you, too, Matt."
