"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair
and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

A Mother's Love

As I tucked the boys into bed last night and told each one how much I loved them, one boy replied with the following:

"I know you love us a whole lot, Mom."

"You do?"  I asked.  "How do you know that?"

"Because you didn't eat us when we were babies like some other creatures in the animal kingdom do."

"You're absolutely right."  I replied.  "I promise to never eat you."

And THAT is how much I love my children.
