This kid of mine is pure joy. Not a day goes by that I don't feel blown away at the blessing he is. I feel like the luckiest person in the world that I get to be his mom. And, he does not reserve these smiles just for the swings. These are the smiles that greet me every time I go into his room to get him, or push him around in the stroller, or make a funny face at him, or for no reason at all. Sometimes I feel like my heart is literally going to explode at the sight of this kid. It's really hard to feel sad about anything when I get to spend my days with this ball of joy. He is far greater than anything I ever imagined for myself. He makes everything better.
God is good.
(I think Silas likes the swings more now than he did here.)
