One day last week a close relative was visiting our family. We helped raise him and we love him, but he has been a challenge for the last few years. We have bailed him out of trouble in more ways than one. In fact, something awful had happened that morning and we had just brought him back from the Emergency Department of the hospital.
My granddaughter, Cherish, was leaving for college in a few days, and her mother was saying how hard it is to let her go and how much she will miss her. Our prodigal relative grinned and said, "Don't worry Christine. You'll always have me."
We laughed pretty hard at that one, and so did he because it is quite possibly true.
