This is a blog post from one of my blogs back in 2007
God has been shining down on my in the past few days. Today while lying on my son’s floor watching Spykids 2 with him. He came over to where I was lying put his head on my hip wrap his arms around my waist and said, “I love you mom!”
I truly had to stop myself from tearing. This was the first time he said it without me saying it first.
I had to wait 4 years, 5 months, 10 days but it was worth it.
Handsome you made me so happy. I can’t even tell you how hearing those words made me feel. As you grow up into the awesome man I know you will be try to remember how important and powerful those words can be when they truly come from the heart.
If you feel it, say it. I think those words can’t ever be said enough as long as they are true. I tell you, Daddy and your sister I love you at least 5 times a day. You never know when it will be the last time you say it to someone you love.
My parents must have felt it but I don’t remember ever hearing it. I probably say it a lot, well mostly because when I feel it I want to say it but also because I want you to hear me and be able to pull it into memory whenever you need it.
Always know how in love I am with you and how happy I am that I was chosen to be your Mommy.
