I think of the mornings when my boys were little and I would be up early prepping the holiday meal or at least putting together what I would be taking to dinner if I wasn’t hosting. Thier sweet little sound when they would come downstairs in the morning, give me a hug and say “I love you mommy”. My little boys, who are all grown up, will always be in my heart who they were from day one of their lives. Precious, sweet, adorable, thoughtful and loving children that I am blessed to have in my life. It is amazing the love one can feel for someone else, but it is even more amazing the bond between a mother and child. It touches my heart so deep knowing that my sons are not afraid to show me they love me. They have hearts and are compassionate young men – and I know they love me as deeply as I love them. For that I will be forever thankful.
So, while I may shed a few tears because I am not within reach of their hugs today, I anticipate when I will see them and will remember all the years we have been together on this holiday…..and know that there will be many more to come.
