________________________________________________

Sometimes I sit and watch him. Watch him learn things…experiencing everything through the innocence that can only be found in a child. I watch him become amazed at the tiniest of things and wonder when those things will stop surprising him. I worry that one day, that simple grin, that heartfelt love for life will fade. I worry about what the world will teach him…what my husband and I will teach him. Will we raise him to be a man that both fears and praises the Lord? Will he see God’s love and mercy through us? He’s only two today…but I worry that I am going to turn around and tomorrow he’ll be 20.

I can honestly say that my life wasn’t complete until I became a mom. I never, ever knew how much love you could have for someone. I adore my husband and love him to the depths of my soul. But the love between a mother and her child…it is unshakeable. There is nothing I would not do for my son. No place I wouldn’t go. No thing I wouldn’t sacrifice…just to keep him from ever feeling one ounce of pain or sorrow or hurt. And it’s when I think of how big this love I have for my son; how much love my Earthly and Mortal heart has for this tiny person…I am blown away and brought to my knees at how much my God loves me. And how much he cares for me. And what kind of sacrifices HE made so I wouldn’t have to feel sorrow and pain. Wow.

My heart melts at the sight of this sweet little boy. If I leave to go somewhere without him, I’m greeted when I return with arms wide open and a smile that brings tears to my eyes every single time. His simple “Hey Mommy!” when I go in his room in the mornings to get him out of bed; his excitement when he sees a car go by or a sports commercial on TV; the kindness and tenderness he displays when playing with animals {real or stuffed}; how much he loves me…all of it takes my breath away. I go to bed every single night thanking God for making me a mother. I know now why my mom made the decisions that she made when I was growing up…and many of them are the same decisions I would make for my son now.

Two years old. Wow. I can’t believe it. My baby is not so much of a baby anymore. He’s getting to be a big boy. But for now, while I can, I will hold him in my arms, hug him every chance I can, wipe away his tears when he cries, dance and act silly just to see him smile, kiss his boo-boos, and promise him the world.

Because that’s what mommy’s do.
