There is so much pain in my facebook news feed and prayer list from church about young children and babies with critical illnesses. It just seems so very unfair.
And whenever I think that thought...about life being unfair...I hear my mother's voice...
"Nobody ever said life was fair".
Thanks, Mom for the reality check.
Tonight, I picked up my little man, Weston from daycare for our Friday night date night with Nonno. He IS the sparkle in my Friday this week!
To hear, "I love you"...in his two year old voice. My heart just melts.
We had a moment in the restaurant where I was holding him, hugging him and telling him that I love him...he said "I love you" back. I squeezed him harder, we were cheek to cheek and I said that makes me so happy to hear you say that. He said "happy". So there we stood, cheek to cheek just loving each other.
I love you.
I love you.
That makes JoJo so happy.
Life may not be fair...but there are beautiful moments. Notice them. Cling to them. Remember them.
In the words of a SeneSister who lost her young daughter today...
"Please, hug your loved ones. Forgive. Be gentle. Cherish every moment. For those of you who clung to prayer and God these last couple of days, stay there. Always. Knowing my baby girl was the highway that brought so many people together and finding/growing their faith is definitely a light through this terrible darkness."
Find the sparkle. No matter the season. Shine little light...shine...
