Today was a pretty good one ,my eldest son brought his girlfriend over for lunch ,I havn't seen him for ages because of his busy schedule..you know mother comes after work ,girlfriend ,friends ,gym and so on .Anyway he gave me something to smile about today..the way he treats his girlfriend is quite amazing for a young guy of his age (22) he was such a gentleman towards her ,holding an umbrella over her when she got out of the car because it was raining ,serving her from the table before himself ,pouring her drinks ,giving her the most comfortable chair ,clearing the table and even offering to wash the dishes (ok the last two were for my benefit)
I have always told him he should treat women with respect and as equals and tried to instil good manners but it was an abseloute joy to watch him behave with such courtesy .I have no doubt that a lot of people would say he's too soft and will be taken advantage of but as I see it ,the way he treats others is a mark of who he is and of his standards .The world is full of rude ,boreish and insensitive men ,im glad I havn't helped add to the number and won't have to feel partly responsible for some girls or womans misery as a result :-)
As proud as I am of him for his various achievments I don't think anything could make me feel better than to know he has turned into a gentleman rather than a lout .
