Seriously?

Every now and then, a simple moment blows you away.

Greg brings home a lot of papers from school, and I go through each one, curiously checking on my boy and how he's progressing.

And BAM - I came across this little assignment:

Write four sentences about something beautiful you have seen in America. Tell what it looks like and why you like it.

Greg wrote: "I have seen my Mom, Jenei. She has makeup, perfume, and nail polish. I would find her at home. I like her because she's so sweet!

AAAAHHHHHH!!!

Ok...I'm coming out of my stalking world...I went to IWU with Greg and saw your blog on Jason & Holly's. Now you know I'm not a psycho stalker - I'm as normal as IWU alumni come! :)

I often feel that I need to come out of my 'stalking state' but today...this post was AMAZING! What a sweet boy you two are raising - and a sheer treasure for a wonderful woman of God someday! Way to go!

That is exactly what this frazzled mommy needed to read today! I only hope and pray that someday my children will bless me with words such as these!

Wow...things like this are what makes all the chaos worth it. It is nice to see his tender side. I guess he is watching when we don't realize it! :)

I don't know what is more impressive, his sweet note, or that a mom of 4 has makeup, nailpolish and perfume?? :)
