The True Joy of Parenting

My oldest boy, Benjamin is a very smart, bright eyed child. He is always "ready" for anything and generally embraces everything with a "Great!!! Let's do it!" attitude. He is enthusiastic and intense. Benjamin also requires a lot of "work". With his brilliant, intense personality, that boy can give you a run for your money. But I've always felt, that if properly parented, these traits will be a great benefit to him in the "real world". I won't lie to you. It can be tiring and discouraging. 

Yesterday, while cleaning the house from "stem-to-stern" I pulled back Benjamin's curtains to dust the window sill and what did I find?

A Valentine's Day Card
To God.
From Ben.

That is one of the most awesome things I've ever read! I can't imagine what that did for you as a mom. You, my dear, have a very special child - which, I'm sure you already knew!
