to be this little guys best friend right now, the person he depends on most, the food source, the water source, the person who keeps him clean, the entertainer, the teacher, the soother.  it's amazing to think that since he grasps nothing about God or the fact that many people will play huge roles in his life, i am his world.  for this short time i am everything to him. 

few things in life are this good.  his innocence, his energy, his love.  he radiants purity.  pure happiness, pure sorrow, pure frustration, pure affection. 

to not be a mom sounds like the very worst thing i could ever imagine. 


  1. Love this, and I so very much agree. :)

  2. that first paragraph put a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. i'm a single mom and unfortunately lost my job about 2 months ago, so i have been at home with my son every. single. day. my patience is wearing thin and the highlight of my day is having dinner with my parents and a little break from being all of those things that you mentioned. but, after reading that, everything is back in perspective. my priorities are re-ordered. thank you.

  3. i am so sorry. i know exactly where you are at. i hope things get easier for you soon. i am so glad this touched you, i need gentle reminders often that despite the many hardships i have been through (i am a single mom too and have been for 11 months now) i am so blessed. we have the very best job a person could have! hugs!

  4. It's a pretty amazing thing... to be someone's whole world. And, like you said, it is temporary. Such a good reminder. It can be r.eally tough sometimes, but as a whole, amazing. Love this. =)
