Love Thursday #20

Love is...



He comes to me, usually when I have found the most comfortable warmest position in which to sleep.

He comes to me. I hear his feet on the floor before he's even in the room. "Mama?" he asks softly. I know what he needs. I follow him back to his room. He's curled up on his pillow as I reach his bed. I pull the sheets and covers up and tuck them tightly all around him.

"Say goodnight to blankies." he commands.
"Goodnight blankies, I love you." I reply, giving them all a pat.
I turn to go.
"Mama." His small voice floats to me through the darkness from a mound of blankets.
"See you in the morning.....Sweet Dweams."

My heart is full.

Love Thursday & Love Is All Around.

How precious! I love it so much. That post made me think of how my little one (now teenager) used to whisper, "Fweet dweams." Thanks for a heart-warming post. :)

So sweet. Makes me excited for when my Dylan starts to say sweet things like that to me at night.
But then again, I'm really enjoying this whole "sleeping through the night" thing and hope we can keep the crib around a bit longer. By the way, how long can you keep that crib?? (inquiring minds want to know)

I came for Friday's Photo Hunt and I do like your post for that but I really like this one. Is there anything better than being a mom? :)
