The Man that Sprinted By

I didn’t  hear him approach. Suddenly I just felt the stare of a man.

I glanced to the right and there he was: shirtless, wearing sunglasses, earbuds in his ears, practically running in place to stay beside me as I gave my jog all the speed I  had.

A smile emerged on his face.


Then he upped his stride leaving me in the dust while yelling back over his shoulder,

“I’m proud of you, Momma. Proud of you!” 

I beamed like the sun as I watched my son run off ahead of me. He moved like a gazelle. It was a beautiful sight if I dare to say so since I did incubate that child for 7 months (yep, he was a preemie).

Tall, strong, and sailing by like a breeze; all the while saying he is proud of ME.

The feeling is mutual.
