His Tender Heart....

Yesterday was a tough day with Small Fry. Really tough. We had been on a 10 day whirlwind tour of the north, sleeping in a different place every 2 or 3 days. I just knew when we returned home we would have some behavior issues. We sure did! Meltdowns galore and control issues as well. I was just mentally exhausted from dealing with all of it for two days.

Poor Jabber Jaw saw how down I was and so at VBS last night he set about making me a gift. He has such a tender heart! He hid the gift behind his back and this is what he said to me before he gave it to me.

Jabber Jaw: Mom, I know you've had such a hard day with ____. So tonight at VBS I made something for you that I thought would cheer you up.

This is what he made me.

Aren't homemade gifts the best? He could have saved it for my birthday in a few days, but he knew it would make me feel better now. This little guy was so thoughtful, it just made me well up with tears. He could tell I was touched by my tears and the hug that I gave him that stretched onto forever. As I hugged my boy, fast becoming a young man, I thought: "cherish this..... He's growing so fast!"

I love him to pieces that Jabber Jaw.

Awwww...what a sweetheart he is. You have such a precious family. If I'm ever talking about y'all and the kids can't place the name, I'll say, "You know, the really sweet, polite boys."

And, they all say, with a look of recognition on their faces, "Oh, yeah."
