Today I have a cold that has kicked me in the head. I am exhausted, stuffed up, and can't get rid of my headache. We had a early dismissal at school today and I felt guilty because I was just laying around and not doing anything with the kids. Then, all of a sudden, our 8-year-old, Bennett came over to me, gave me a big hug and said, "You're the best Mom ever!" Not feeling like the best-mom-ever, I replied, "Why?" Bennett said, "Because you're MY mom!" Now that just melted my heart and sent the tears gushing out of my eyes! He said, "I love you, Mom." I said, "I love you more!" And then he said, "Yeah, you're probably right."
Nothing compares to being a mom. Nothing compares to the love you feel for your child. And nothing compares to that feeling when they melt your heart! I love you, Benny!
