I heard this saying once.
It goes like this. "There's a Special Place in Heaven for the Mother of Three Boys."
It made me smile when I heard it.
And today I believe it.
This morning, during the rush of getting out the door, I was talking to my family. And I didn't think they were listening. So I looked at 15 year old Charlie and said, "I don't think anyone is listening to me." He looked up and sincerely said, "What did you say, Mom? I wasn't listening."
Today I went to Beach Day in George's class. He wore his swimsuit in the classroom. It was adorable. He talked to me in the classroom. Then it was lunchtime, and I had lots to do, but I thought, "Harmony, these are the moments. Don't wish them away. Stay and eat lunch with George."
So I asked him, "George, would you like me to eat lunch with you?" He sweetly looked up at me and said, "No thanks." Then he walked away with his friends.
Today after school, I tried to give Danny a hug and ask him about his day. He looked at me and said, "Mom, you're embarrassing sometimes, do you know that?"
Three for three.
And on days like this, I just remember that there is a special place in heaven for me.
I never thought I would have three boys. I often say that God smiled when He sent me Mr. Danny.
And I think He knew exactly what He was doing.
Why? Because I couldn't imagine my life any other way.
