So I have to journal this moment...I don't ever want to forget it.
Owen made me cry....happy, sweet tears though.
Tears of joy and thanks.
I was feeding Sadie while the boys were playing with Blake.
I could hear Owen calling me, but I didn't respond as Sadie was drifting to sleep in my arms.
He wasn't crying, just looking for me.
Our house isn't big...I knew he could find me easily.
He walked into Sadie's room and it was dark so he turned her nightlight on (so sweet that he knew the big light would be too bright for her).
He walked to us and told her, "I sure do love you Sadie", and smooched her on the head.
He started singing this song he sings to her..."Go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep, sleep, sleep, sle-ep!"
While he was singing to her he was rubbing her head trying to get her to fall asleep. It actually woke her up more, but I couldn't stop him...it was priceless.
After he finished singing he said...
"Sleep tight sister. Tomorrow's gonna be a fun day . It's gonna be nice outside and we're gonna play football. We're going have a family day. And you know that God is in your heart Sadie. I sure do love you."
As he was walking out he turned the nightlight back off and said, "Sadie you sure are a sweet sweet girl!"
By this time I have tears streaming down my face. I couldn't say anything but just watch him.
Oh, Lord...thank you for these sweet, incredible children. Help me to teach them to be like you. Help me to be an example of your love for them. Give me peace and patience, mercy and a gentle spirit. Help me to remember how tender they are. Remind me that these baby years will pass so quickly and that I need to slow down and take in each moment. More than anything may they see the love I have for you and want nothing more than to have a relationship with you. Thank you will never be enough for the miraculous ways you brought them to me!
