We all look like we feel...



I talk a lot about the little things that go on in my life...but after having cancer my eyes and heart have been opened to so much more that life has to offer me...
While listening to music as I was cleaning up the breakfast dishes. A song came on by Dashboard Confessionals: Stolen. My beautiful little boy came up to me bouncing up and down saying "dance with me Mommy, dance with me". For one second I thought that I "should" finish cleaning the kitchen...but I looked into his eyes and threw the towel on the counter. We held hands and he was jumping up and down (he gets his moves from his Momma) all the while giggling and so happy, his laughter was contagious! My baby girl came over and wanted to join in. She actually was listening to the lyrics and said; "Did he really steal her heart?" I explained to her that he loved her so very much that she had "stolen" his heart...not literally, but he had given his heart to her, and no one else. The thought came to me: These sweet little babies of mine and the man of my dreams have stolen my heart. I am theirs forever, and ever, and they are mine...nothing can break that bond. Nothing...It was so nice to just "forget" for a moment, and "be" with my babies dancing the morning away... I am so blessed to be in love. It is a beautiful thing.

Sarah,

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I needed your love and comment more than you know. My marriage has been struggling, like on fire, burning down struggling. Just this week I decided along with my finally willing husband to give it one more chance. Coming here and reading your blog gives me hope to be in love again someday. I want that eternal family so very very much and I want the same happiness that you have in life Dear Sarah.

My heart and prayers are with you also.

xoxo

Kim

Wow you know how to make me cry, happy happy tears. I am grateful that the people who have stolen my heart (actually it's more like I ripped it out and chased them down saying "Take it, Take it, I want you to have it!" ) I'm grateful to know that if do my best- my part- I can be near them- near my heart- forever and ever and ever.

I think of you EVERY day. The love that is always oozing out of you. ;) That you never hesitate to tell people that you love them. Just know that you are SO loved as well. I love you dearly, and thank the Lord often that he has blessed me enough to be your friend.

We all need moments like that one. Kids are so beautiful. Children think the world of their mommy's. Thank the Lord for them. We love you Sarah! Stay strong.
