The other morning my boy child got out of bed and said, Mama*, I am going to be nice to everyone all day today. And you know what, he was. All. Day. It was like a dream. He shared with his sister. He was helpful to me. He was kind and polite. He Listened. No reminders. He just did it. It was wonderful. You could have knocked me over with a feather.
He is naturally pretty sweet anyway but this was one special day. One his mother will remember for a long time. And hope and pray to see more of.
*He still calls me Mama sometimes. Be still my heart.
