You know, Mom? Sometimes when you're gone on a trip, I'm afraid you're with another little boy.
My eyes filled so fast I had to wait a few seconds to respond and tell him I had a hole in my heart that only he could fill. That there would never be another little boy who could take his place. That when God decided he would be our last baby, he made sure butterbainwould fit into my heart just perfectly. I also said a silent prayer of thanks that a boy with such an open and sweet heart is a perfect last-child fit!
It was his vulnerable honesty that captured me.
As he showed me the soft underbelly of his heart, I realized he'd given me the gift of the sweetest thing.
Hope your valentines' is filled with unexpected and true sweetness as well!
