I Love Him

Tonight I got to say our family prayer before bed. Just after I started, Buddha chimed in with, "I have something to say, Mommy." So, I let him prompt me and he said, "We thank thee for marriage between a man and a woman and for 'Yes on 8.'" I agree wholeheartedly. Then while I was finishing rocking Bugga, Buddha whispered over to me in the silence, "I love you, Mommy." I told him the same and he said, "I love you sooooo much...a lot." Melted my heart all the way down to a little puddle of love on the floor at my feet. I love that kid more than I can say. He is my buddy day in and day out. I am so grateful that his sweet spirit came to my home where I can do my best to guide him around the filth and evil surrounding our children these days. Thank you, God. Thank you for Buddha and Bugga and all the pure little souls we're fighting so hard to protect.

Oh that gave me chills- so sweet. You sure have taught them well. It is moments like that we moms treasure and try to remember when they are acting like little hellians- (like mine are today)

You have taught them well. All your hard work getting the word out has helped your children learn an important lesson.
