How lucky am I?....

I am rarely left speechless...
I can't remember a time when I couldn't put into words
how I felt..
what I thought...
or what my opinion was...
that being said,
today I was left speechless....
by my son.
He came over and announced that he
wanted to give us our Christmas present,
And then, proceeded to tell us that he was
taking us to the beach
for vacation.
In 10 days....
That is the sound of silence.
That is what
I was able to come up with...
I am stunned.
This is a college student.
A college student that has
earned a living, online,
saved his money,
and is wanting to spend it on us.
Gratitude is only the beginning of
what I feel.
Try on.....pride...
how about.....admiration....
and love.
How could I be so fortunate
to have this wonderful young man in my life?
How can I express my wonder of it all?
I am blessed.
