We were at the table when my husband, my son, and I were talking about our son’s day at school. Everything seemed to be going well. He started to tell us about a conversation that he had with a friend. That’s when our son said the 4 words that I will always remember. “I love Dad more”.

My mouth got really dry all of the sudden I could feel a lump in my throat. It took everything out of me to hold back the tears that were formulating in my eyes. I asked him why he felt that way. He said, “Dad and I have more in common. He just gets me”.
