Will they ever know?

I glanced out the window as I was preparing dinner and I could see my son.  He was holding his large plastic sword and slicing it through the air.  I assume he was fighting imaginary dragons or giants or perhaps even Goombas.  His arms were flailing, his legs were a blur of motion and he was talking to himself. 

And my heart melted.

As my husband and I were climbing into bed, he noticed a small rock on his bedside table.  My daughter loves to give us gifts.  Sometimes it is a drawing, sometimes it is a shell, sometimes just a random item from around the house.  I looked over at my bedside table and realized that I had a rock too.

And my heart melted.

I wonder if they will ever know how much I love them?

My guess is that they will when they are grown... i realized how much my parents loved me when I had my first child ... then I knew!

You have such sweet kids!

They will know - when they have their own kids!

can you just imagine our Saviour's love for us?!?!!!!!

i didn't think it was possible to love anything like i love my babies. i make sure i tell them and show every day just how much i do...so that when they do get older they will be able to look back and know just how much i loved them!!
