My step-son has moments when he just melts my heart and scatters every sour thought in my soul.
Today he gave me an envelope with a bunch of letters written on it and told me he had written a note. I asked him to tell me what it said. He said “Dear Mommy- I wrote you this letter because I wanted you to smile. I am very proud of you. You are a great Mommy. I love you big much.”
So I open the envelope and there’s a little picture of two stick figures, and one is giving the other one a flower.
And he says “That’s me giving you a flower.”
Totally made my day.
