Truly Live

I got a call from one of my older sons today...he made my heart sigh....he wasn't feeling well. I asked him if he needed anything and his reply...no...I just felt like talking to you. He is 22 years old...and still needs his mom.

I have never been a person that needed cards, presents or material show of care. It is moments like the one I had today that fill my heart and sustain me. It is the little things that stir my soul....the moments that happen unexpectedly...

My family is a gift of immeasurable proportion and I thank God every day for what he has given me...Love the people who you hold close to your heart...show them..tell them...if you do you will truly live.

  1. That is such a sweet post! I didn't know you had FOUR boys!!!! Wowzers, I thought I felt outnumbered! I love raising boys, they are soooo much fun and I wouldn't have it any other way. I hope when mine are 22 they call me up like that. Sounds like you have a beautiful relationship with them and they are blessed to have you as their momma!
