Because I Want To
We hadn’t told Brat Boy we were going to his game. Getting to the gym early, we sat where he he’d see us. The teams came out to warm up, and his face lit up as he waved.
“Makes the trip worthwhile,” Dr. Deb said.
I laughed. “What if we’d driven three hours and he had rolled his eyes when he saw us?” I asked. “We’d have to leave.”
“No, we’d stay. I’d strangle him after the game, but we’d see him play.” She leaned into me, squeezed my hand, and added. “Love to see my baby play.”
We’d driven three hours because we wanted to. His smile was icing on the cake.
Today I’ll happily do something because I want to, grateful if someone else appreciates my efforts.
