Days of Thanks #5
I am so grateful for the light in Jackson's eyes and the delight in his voice when he sees me at the end of his day at school. There's very little that can beat the excited "Mommy!" out of his mouth as he drops whatever he is doing and comes tumbling over to hug me. And when he puts that head down on my shoulder... well, most of you know the rest on that one. Tonight, before Ed put him to bed, I asked him for a hug, and he willingly obliged and then went back to his daddy. And then he leaned over to come to me again, and I said, "I'll take all that you'll give me sweet boy," and I held him tight for a moment, not a long moment, but long enough.
