He really is this happy almost all of the time.
I am so blessed to be his mother,
so blessed to call him my son.
When he tells me, "I will always hug you, and love you forever", my heart melts.
When he blows me a kiss goodbye in the kindergarten line,
I grab each one and store it as if it were the most valuable item on the planet...because it is.
When he tells me, "Mommy, you are in my heart", I want to hold on and never let him go.
There will come a day when he will fly on his own,
and oh, how he will soar!
