My Reward

For this small moment, this one fleeting magical phrase, I have worked tirelessly, selflessly, sleeplessly, and often lonesomely for two years and two months exactly:

"I love you."

Asher said this to me tonight for the first time.

    Yay! I must admit I’m very much looking forward to hearing that from Amelia. She does give lots of hugs and kisses (and nibbles at times) and I love it when she says “Mama.” But the words are very precious. =)

    Imagining the two of you together in that moment is making my heart all melty inside.
