Look what I planted for you.
I looked at that copper haired freckly little boy and my heart absolutely melted. Here he was presenting me with a gift, a gift of grass that he carefully planted and cultivated while I was in New York City and he so wanted me to be happy with it – even when he found out that the very grass was something I didn’t want in my yard.
I love that grass now.
I love it because to my Caleb it was beautiful. It was a gift to me, his mom, his gardening and plant loving mom. To him it was beautiful, and beautiful enough to be shared with his mom.
That is such a sweet story! Makes me want to go run out and hug my kiddos right now!
It’s amazing the beauty we miss or the wonder we get to witness through our children’s eyes x
So sweet! I read it to my kids.
How sweet! I wish I could see the world through my kid’s eyes more.
I loved this! It made me tear up, thinking about some of the things that my kids might have thought was awesome, that I just dismissed. 🙁
Sharing with my Bible Study group now. 🙂
that is just the sweetest gesture. reminds me of hunter throwing out some food because he was helping me “clean up.” : ) so thankful for your perspective and sharing it with us to help keep mine in check!
Aw! What a precious gift!
The Lord will always use whatever you’re going through for your good! Praying right now!
Psalms 91:9-12 Because thou hast made the LORD, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.
