I never want to forget how I felt last night when Jacob said without being prompted, "I love mommy. I love mommy" when I was putting him to bed. All of my children have had a first time telling me that they love me, but somehow I let the moment pass. I didn't take the time to revel in the warmth and strength it should have given me. I'm not going to let that happen this time....or next time when John says it for the first time. I'm a fool for not recognizing "one of those moments" the first three times. So, today I'm going to replay and replay that scene, and my favorite scenes from my other children's lives and enjoy the peace and comfort those memories bring.
