Dear Mama Laura,
You are seriously a mom to me. You have saved my life and made life better for my son, Matthew. He is an amazing young man and you are the reason. I always say to him, "Dr. Laura would claim you as her grandkid!" and he knows that is the biggest complement he could ever receive.
He is 14 years old and a true warrior spirit. When he was in 7th grade he got between a bratty bully and another smaller kid at his baseball game. The brat was calling the other kid "gay" and along with other names. Matt stepped in and told him to knock it off. The kid threatened Matt with a baseball bat. All Matt said was "Bring it on". Another kid told the coach and the kid was kicked off the team. My son hangs out with good kids, but not one of them ever sticks up for another in the face of danger or mean people.
I have seen my son stick up for so many. He has even spoken out to teachers that were being awful to students. I am here to tell you thought that my son's warrior spirit has been cultivated and strengthened by you.
It has happened because:
- I listened to you and made really good life choices.
- I have feed my husband and nurtured my marriage.
- I have been a stay at home mom and invested in him.
- I have been thankful and blessed that I only got one child.
- I married a real man and let him be a strong influence.
I could go on and on! There are so many more things I could tell you but I covered the one value that I think you will love the most.
