That was the sound of my heart exploding.
Because this gummy smile was directed at me. The sleepless nights, the sore nipples, the stretch marks...all worth it. I barely remember the pain of labor because my son, MY SON, smiled at me. Can you believe that chin? Oh the pudge!
Sometimes I am completely overwhelmed by it all. I don't deserve this. I have done nothing in my life that warrants the pure joy that I have been given.
I am so blessed. It is so easy for me to forget this simple fact when bills start to pile up, dishes don't get washed, dirty clothes litter the floor, and arguments start.
I am so blessed to have these two in my life.
