He’s Laughing…

Andrew, my 13 year old, has been very quiet and withdrawn lately.

His dad died 13 1/2 months ago.

His cat died a month ago.

And he’s been withdrawing into computer and Xbox and his cell phone and generally getting more and more depressed.

I’ve been worried.

Two days ago – we got him a new kitten.

This morning, we’re sitting, being amused by the kitten’s antics and the dog’s reactions to the kitten and he’s laughing.

He’s laughing HARD.

He’s got this look on his face I haven’t seen in a long time.

Joy.

I’ve missed it.  It’s so wonderfully awesome to see.

The kitten was the right move… even with the upcoming move.

Andrew and Kudos
