Tonight, I asked him if he was ready for bed and he said "house..." He then started to get up and I wondered where he was off to. I was laying on my side and he came over and laid right on top of me, with one hand along my back and the other resting on my neck and face.
After a minute he quietly whispered, "Happy."
"Jude, are you happy?"
"What makes you happy, loved one?"
(You can hear his voice rise as he gets a big smile on his face...) "Mommmmy."
"What else makes you happy baby?"
Words can not express the feelings I had at that moment or now. I feel so incredibly humbled to be the mother to this precious, tender little spirit. I refer to him as my "angel from heaven" many times each day and I truly believe it. I can not even begin to adequately express the gratitude I feel to be so blessed to be his mother and to have a faithful husband by my side.
There is no calling I honor more than that of "mother."
