Little Boys & Love Letters

Yesterday was my birthday and my oldest son(he's 10) wrote a love letter to me. Here's an excerpt....

Hey Mom, I'm writing this for your birthday and I know it's very special. I know you don't want me to grow up but I'll have to and I'll always be your "boyfriend". I want to say thank you for giving birth to me. When I get married and move away, I'll always think about you. I'll also call you and write letters to you every day......thanks for being my mom.

He read this in front of our family, it was all I could do to keep from losing it. The precious note will be kept in my treasure box with all the other sweet notes & cards I've collected over the years. I truly believe that children are a gift from the Lord and what a gift that note is. He poured his little heart into it. For all you moms out there; take time to treasure your little ones for we only have them for a short while till they grow up and go out into that big world. I know how hard it is to keep up the daily grind and still have some sanity. I am NOT one of those women who have a perfect home and family. Every evening at 5:00pm I wonder what's for dinner and stare blankly at the freezer. Last week my husband informed me we were out of toilet paper.......isn't that what the phonebook is for? You know you've dropped the ball when that happens. Take heart, this is just a short season.
