So Show Me Family

Sunday afternoon I sat on our porch swing reading for hours.  Our kids had friends over and the neighbors were out, and the whole afternoon was pretty blissful.  At one point, Beti walked up and stopped about five feet away from me, staring at me blankly.  I looked up at her.

She said, with zero expression or emotion, "I belong with you. You belong with me."

Our eyes locked on each other, I answered, "You're my sweetheart."

She solemnly nodded, turned and ran back down the steps to play again with her friends.

I could relate so much to this post.  We've come a long way, baby.  

We listen to this song a lot.

So beautiful. We love that song, and now we'll think of the Rooney's every time we hear it.

The good being done here, for and by each of you in your family, knows no bounds. It will spread and envelop with love in ways only some of you will witness because it will go on and on and on. I am in awe.

So true. Love it when they have that moment of feeling they truly belong. The prayer of a mamas heart for so long.

Oh Lori. What sweetness. Remember last year, the walk in the park and you on the phone. My heart was all bound up for you then. Look where we all are now! Loveliness.
