This weekend reminds me of how blessed I am.
Here are a few of the reasons..
The way he snuggles.. his hugs & kisses warm the very depths of me.
He says “Mommy I love you soooo much!
When am I going to grow up and be little? I want to be your baby forever, ok mommy?”
The way she giggles.. and the gifts & cards she is always making for others.
She has such a sweet tender heart.
The way he chatters.. and finds the funny in everything.
He has matured so much in the last year. I spend alot of time answering his questions & explaining the meaning of everything.
His sense of awareness about what is cool & acceptable has increased too, making any public displays of affection a little awkward..hehe
but after bedtime prayers, He often says, “just one more kiss?? please?”
I treasure the flowers & handmade cards from my children more than anything.
They know how to make my heart happy and have a distinct way of expressing their love.
I assume the love they give is what they need, so I am responding in kind.
It reminds me of the book The 5 love languages.
Now, I know if I could only hold onto these days forever, I would be so tempted.
Happy Mother’s day to each of you!
