Deep thoughts

Sunday morning was a little crazy - just trying to get everyone fed & bathed & dressed for church. After church I had to run an errand & when I came home the kids had just gone down for their naps. I heard the girl moving around upstairs so went to say hey. I laid next to her. We gave hugs & then I put my hands on her cheeks. I felt like sharing a very important truth with my little girl. One of those moments - those precious teachable moments when you know they are absorbing every word you say. I loooked her in the eyes & held her face close & said,

"I love you sooooooooooo much. And God loves you & made you just the way you are. And He has a purpose for your life."

Her eyes got real big as she whispers,

"I pooted"

OK.

"Have a good nap"

Mom exits.

I needed to hear this today. I just got off the phone telling Jeff how I don't think I can handle another boy in this house... and turns out your conversations sound VERY MUCH like mine!
