One for the journal

This afternoon after church, I was cleaning up the kitchen and heard the boys fighting in the other room. I listened carefully, trying to tell if I needed to intervene or let them work it out. After a couple minutes it became apparent they needed an adult to play peace keeper. As I was walking into the room, Jeff came down the stairs. He had heard them fighting.

After hearing both sides, offering forgiveness, and handing out hugs -- Jacob turned to me and asked to be held. That doesn't happen very often. He is six now, ya know.
I quickly scooped him into my lap and gave him a big hug. He melted into my arms and said, "Mom, you are my favorite lovey."

I love being a mom.
