I love U

... read the txt.

The txt alert woke me up; it was 1:30am and my eyes had trouble focusing on the startlingly bright display on my iPhone.

I love u.

It's not often I get a message like that from a teenager. Actually that's the first time, and it was indeed a great thrill. After all the joy and pain we've been through, that message meant more to me than anything I could have received from anyone about anything.

Three simple words, which are often the hardest to say.

What else could my reply have been other than...

...I love u too Ben.

He is after all my son.
