“As much as we miss you on GH,” said @dmartinwebster, referring to Sonny currently being missing following his final showdown with Julian (William deVry). “THIS RIGHT HERE is much more important!”
“Looking so forward to seeing this,” said @debbiemutch. “[Your son] is a really smart young man and he seems to know he can talk to you about anything, I just feel this from watching this little clip.”
“This makes me tear u[, proves what an amazing father you are that your child can come to you and say this, that as a teen he WANTS to spend more time with dad and that he is secure enough to say hey dad I want more time with you!” says @troopina.
On the State of Mind website, the show’s mission, Benard says, “means being 100% present, feeling completely at peace inside of you, not letting your thoughts control your life and always looking for ways to be the best that you can be.” You can see this Sunday’s show by clicking here.
