This week was a challenge with Jude. My Mommy Heart was broken at some of his comments but as I talked to many of my friends and family I was reassured that Jude is "normal". We will all get through this...hopefully.
Today I want to exclaim that my 3 words for the week are "I LOVE YOU!" Jude, I love you, I love you even when you say you DON'T love me. I love you when your ears seem to be broken. I love you even when you tell me to go away. My little Turtle, I love you more than you can even imagine and I am thankful for the struggles and challenges we have.
Recently, there has been a lot of death in the blog world. Mother's dying too young, babies passing away of a terminal cancer, and a wild child like Jude simply having fun in the wrong place at the wrong time. Heartbreaking. I do not know these families from Adam but as I read their stories I shed tears. I cannot imagine being in their shoes.
I am thankful that I get to have these challenges with Jude even though they break my heart. I am thankful that I get to hug this crazy guy after he decides he DOES love me! What a challenge we have as parents. Raising well behaved children and yet the idea of being upset with your child and then having a tragedy happen makes me sick to think about. These 3 words will always leave my mouth when we part ways, even if we are in a challenging situation with behavior.
Friends. Tell your loved ones you love them. I LOVE YOU! How simple are those 3 words? Live each day to the fullest.
I LOVE YOU!
