Best Part of My Day


I must say the best part of my day had to be when Aidan received a Valentine from a little boy in Liam`s Kindergarten class. Aidan was so excited, he talked to the little card all the way home. He kept pointing at the picture and saying ``yep, yep, yep....`` How thoughtful of the family to include Aidan in this little holiday! It did my heart good.

Speaking of hearts. . . when Aidan was in the bathtub I was looking at his scar, remembering how scared I was before his surgery. I really thought it would bother me to see it - as if the scar would be a reminder of how fragile he was, and how terrified we were in the 5 months leading up to the surgery. But, no. . . thankfully it acts like a signature from the surgeon that all is well now. An exclamation mark that he`s ready, willing, and able to grow and experience everything life has to offer.

I love this picture of Aidan. Adorable! I just want to squeeze him.

I feel the same way about Lila's scars. Without them, she wouldn't be here.
