Last night it was raining.....Like really raining.....Like my phone wouldn't stop beeping with the flash flood warnings. (I live in the desert, so when it rains it floods). Once that rain started my house became crazy with littles running around, screaming, peeking out windows, cheering for the rain, being in awe at the lite up sky, and then a little Miss would become scared when the thunder would boom. Her brother stood by her, helping her to overcome her fear. That boy of mine....what can I say....he is sweet beyond belief. I wanted to remember that sweetness. I didn't want to forget the testimony he shared with me at bedtime. So below you have a little bit from my evening last night. Being a Mom is tough nuggets most days, but then you have moments where you thank God for these precious gifts....these sweet spirits that teach you everyday. Last night I had one of those moments.
"Tonight it started to pour and the sky lite up. You were first to see it. You ran into the room, full of excitement. You love it when it rains, but when it storms you get super happy. You love to see the flashes and hear the booms. You find wonder in storms because you know who created them. I am thankful that today you shared you're testimony with me. At bed time you told me how cool it was that God had created this Earth and that you knew he controlled the storms. You told me that God doesn't want to hurt people with storms, but to clean and renew the land. Your little 8 year old testimony touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes. I love seeing you grow into this young boy you are becoming. You are compassionate and loving. You prayed for your cousins because you remembered what it felt like to be scarred of thunder. You prayed for your sister and then went and hugged her. You saw her hiding under the covers and you wanted to take away that fear. You teach me every day. You remind me about the sweet blessings we are given everyday. You are a blessing to me. Thank you for being an amazing son. I can not wait to see the man you are going to become. I know he is going to be one amazing man. I love you Bubba, to the moon and back.
I love you my freckled face boy
Have a wonderful Saturday lovelies and if it is storming where you are, hug those littles and kiss their foreheads. How blessed we are to have them.
