"No one will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you are the only ones that know what my heart sounds like from the inside!"


{a re-post...} Last night Prissy asked us to write out things that we liked about each other- I thought it was totally brilliant. We each wrote down {after her careful instructions} on the paper {that she chose for us} the things.... Then she said "Mommas turn first, everyone tell her what she does that you like." It was so wonderful to hear what they really like-it wasn't the fancy dinners, the handmade costumes, or even the parties {gasp} that made the list. But instead- "I love your smile & how you give me lots of lovin' in my bed & you are good at washing my hair."- per the A-man. Prissy said, "I love Mommas sweetness, her encouraging me when I draw, she is always nice, & she helps me at ballet. She is just the best Momma ever!" And YES I cried & hugged their necks off. Then my sweet husband said, "You're a great runner, you are the best mom ever, you are unselfish when it comes to giving to others, & you are good at sewing." I smiled through the tears then, especially how running was high on the list- {it cracks me up what makes them proud}. All the while knowing that these are the 'good ole days & I am loving every minute of them!!!

I am hugging my little ones tighter today it seems.... All the while praying my guts out for the ones who don't have their sweet babes.  I am enjoying the mundane things that seem to come & go without any grand occasion {bath time, reading together, hair brushing, just sweet little looks when they come into the room}...  Thank You Jesus for another day with them!!!!!!
