"I love you Mommy, but..." It is always a new surprise in what follows this statement from my littlest one. Sometimes there is information about what her siblings are doing wrong for the day. Other times she may be thirsty or hungry. There are times she follows it by telling me she needs to kiss me. I always enjoy hearing this one.
My children never cease to amaze me on a daily basis. My greatest treasures come from listening to my children talk.
"Mommy I can help take care of things tomorrow." These words from Jasmine came after a week of her doing extra work to help me while I had a foot injury.
Tonight as Keanu was getting ready for bed he asked me if 8:30am would work for him to serve me breakfast in bed. "I don't know why I want to help you so much Mommy, but I do."
"Mommy can I tell you a secret?" Then as I bend down the softest littlest voice in my ear goes. "I love you Mommy forever." Emma has the power to melt hearts.
I feel very loved tonight.
