My SS called me

And announced he had got engaged grin

I was the second person he told, his mum being the first obviously smile. I feel so proud not only because of the engagement but also because he wanted me to be the next important person to know <<his words.

The last 16 years as sm were not always easy and i sometimes felt i never mattered in his life despite my efforts. He told me that he just automatically rang his mum and then me as i am his other mum. He has never said anything like that before. I may have had a few soppy tears after the call blush

I just wanted to post because sometimes being a sm has its good moments too.
