"You're here!"

I just got home from Home Group a few minutes ago, and I went to check on my love bugs. Caleb was all comfy in his bed so I just pulled his covers up around his neck and said goodnight. Afton, I found out, was not in her bed. She was on my side of the bed...all curled up and cozy. So, I pick her up and carry her to her bed. As I was covering her up she opened up her sleepy little eyes, looked at me and with a happy gasp said, "You're here!", then she grabbed my arm, pulled it close to her and fell asleep again!

Those are the moments of motherhood I treasure & want to remember for the rest of my life! I am the luckiest mama in the world!

That is so precious. Those are just the absolute best moments!

On a similar note, my husband's baseball practice was cancelled yesterday so we surprised our children and showed up at the babysitters together. When we walked in, my 3 year old's eyes lit up and she said "It's my family!" She ran and hugged us, then ran and hugged our 10 month old and said "Look, brother, it's our family!" That is a precious moment!
