Hands

It is Sunday. I love Sundays. I love my primary. I love sitting with my kids in sacrament meeting. And Jason is home. I especially love sitting with my entire family. All of us together.

But today I'm home with a sick little boy. :( The poor guy was up all night with a horrible cough and a fever. So Jason has taken Payson to church today and I am at home on my bed with the laptop snuggling a sick little boy while he watches Cars, already for the second time this morning. But that's how we do things here. When you're sick you get whatever you want. Even if that means watching tv on Sunday (which we normally don't do) or making your mom watch the same movie over and over and over again.

Anyway, my circumstances today made me think of this post, especially the last paragraph. And that paragraph made me think of my all time favorite ever song. And those two things combined with snuggles from the most beautiful boy you've ever seen made me so, so, so grateful to be a mother!! No matter how hard, it really is the best thing in the world.

I sang that song at Alisha's funeral...thats a pretty emotional song to sing to begin with, but now I just can't handle it! Maybe someday, huh?!
