Monday morning Ezra brought this to me and said "I want to give you this money for being such a good mom." with a sweet smile on his face.
I melted quite a bit and said, "Oh honey, I love being your mom--you don't have to pay me to do that!"
His response, given with a hug, was "But I just think you're the best mommy in the whole world and I want you to know that."
And guess what, since the Lord blessed him with sisters and not brothers I was able to truthfully tell him that I think he's the best little boy in the whole world : )
No gift he could ever give me could compare with those words. I sure do love my treasure of a boy.
