Have You Hugged Your Children Lately?

Disclaimer: The following information has been shamelessly copied from another "forwarded email" courtesy of a friend who wishes to remain anonymous. This amazing story has passed between 1,166 individuals (as best I can determine) and was, to the best of my knowledge and belief, originated by a proud and loving parent.

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow.

It was addressed, "Dad." With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter, with trembling hands.

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight motorcycle clothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But it's not only the passion ... Dad she's pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter.

We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't, really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune, for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!!

Don't worry Dad, I'm 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Love, your son,


P.S. Dad, None of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that's in my center desk drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home.

Have you hugged your children lately? Have you told them how much you love them? Wouldn't it be a good idea to begin a new daily routine if you haven't already been doing this everyday?

[blog jaynbuck] - Thanks for your comment and the advice from the very wise woman! By the way, was that very wise woman your mother or your grandmother? I have gotten thru the teenage years myself with one daughter now age 21 and very mature for her age. I am so thankful she has been able to avoid some of the teenage traps like a teen pregnancy, drugs, serious car wreck, etc. I just pray for her every night!

Glad you're on a roll with your youngest, hon! I found a great post on here, a tribute to a special uncle. I'll hunt for it, copy it and send it to you via email. Hope all is well and that you will be getting a chance to use that new camera equipment you purchased!

[blog Bct2Esi] - Perhaps, we should change it again to accommodate "domestic partners" with children and have the letter addressed ... "Dear Mom and Mom" ...

[blog jaynbuck] - I figured it was a wise family member. A parent never stops worrying about their children. All the best to you and yours!
