Mother's Day

My son came home from school yesterday clutching this in his little hands. 



I do not have the words to describe the emotions that swept over me in that instant when I held it in my hand and clasped him to my heart, my eyes brimming with tears as I bent down to kiss his little head.

When asked by his teacher, my four year old could have said he loves me because I give him sweeties or take him to the park or buy him toys. But he chose to say this. "...because she gives me kisses and cuddles when I go to bed." 

I could not have asked for a better present for Mother's Day. So simple and yet so precious that all the wealth in the world pales in comparison. It gave me a sense that perhaps I was doing something right after all in this most difficult of tasks of bringing up my son and doing right by him with every ounce of my being.

  1. Lovely. There's nothing quite as sweet as a hand-made card from a child.
