witticisms by Jess Witty

I am grateful...

for a lot of things. Simple things like lemons. And anything lemons are in. Because lemon is possibly the best flavor ever (next to caramel, but that is a different weakness and a different post). And bonus... possibly the best smell ever, too. Highly underrated in my opinion. Sweet things like a baby that looks nothing like me but is miraculously mine and smiles when I come into the room, a baby (and by "baby" know that I mean "toddler", but I can't bring myself to move him out of the baby category) that can't say "Love you" but can say "Of ou," and a baby (and by "baby" know that I mean "5 year old") who says things like "I'm glad God chose you to be my mama." Serious things like a husband with faith and integrity who can make me laugh even when I don't want to.
A thousand more things to write about, but I don't want to pile on too much of the sappiness at once!
Later, friends.

I loved this post! It brought back a very sweet memory of when my youngest son (now almost 21) said to me, "I'm glad you are my mom, I love you"
Then my boys went through a stage where they wouldn't say they loved me over the phone if there were other people in the room with them - LOL
And now they just say it no matter who is around! Aaaahhhhhhhhh!
