I was wracking my brain the whole afternoon yesterday thinking of a gift, any gift for that matter, that my son Justin has given me. I can’t come up with anything material because my son is too young to understand the concept of giving mommy a gift. Right now, the only person he knows who should be given gifts is himself. LOL!
But my son loves me, that much I know. I’m the first person he wants to see in the morning when he wakes up. When I’m not beside him when he rouses from sleep, he calls for me to pick him up from bed or runs to me for our morning kiss-and-hug time. At night, he can’t sleep without mommy by his side who will sing to him his current favorite song, “You Are My Sunshine.” And even when I turn into a monster mom at times, he continues to love me without falter. Sometimes, I feel I don’t deserve his love because he doesn’t seem to remember my faults.
God has been kind to me because he gave me a son when I never thought I would conceive, a wonderful little bundle of joy who loves me unconditionally. I’m so blessed to have him in my life. He gives me so much joy (and headaches, too!) that yes, I would consider his love the most precious gift he has given me.
