". . . Mom, you would have HATED it" were some of the first words Hays told me with a HUGE smile on his face when I picked him up at the airport this morning. He was right, I would have HATED it and I kind of hate it (with giddy joy for my boy) that I know it even happened! There is a great man who took Hays up in his plane today to get some flight experience and Hays hopped in the car on cloud nine (no pun really intended). He loves to fly and I am so proud of him and so happy for him (even though the mama bear inside of me is screaming--NO MORE STALLING OUT)!!! I love that he has passion and that he follows it. I love that he has dreams and he is pursuing them. I love the joy I see on his face when he has just done something that he loves (so much like his dad and that makes me happy)!!!
