Breakfast in Bed

I slept horribly last night. When morning came I was not even close to being ready for the day. I was so tired and sleepy. William, however, was up and ready to play at 9:30am. The poor little guy had to deal with a grumpy, sleepy, stuck-in-bed Mommy. He didn't complain at all. You know what he did instead?

William went out to the kitchen and found some food for me. He very quietly walked back into my bedroom carrying the plate of food, and he put it on my nightstand. (It was Will's leftover sandwich wrap that he had for breakfast, but hey, it was food!) William said ever so quietly, "I brought you your breakfast, Mommy." He then went back to the kitchen, took a nectarine out of the fruit bowl, and brought it in to me as well. He placed it on the plate next to the wrap. He climbed up in bed with me and said, "I brought you a nectarine, too, Mommy. You need to eat some food. It will make you feel better."

I almost cried! William was so sweet and thoughtful. I am so blessed to have such a caring little boy. God gave me a very good gift when He gave William to me as my son.

Rachel,
He's such a wonderful little boy. I love this story so much.
We are all mirrors....and every day he mirrors back to you the love you give him (and so many other people!).
BTW, I think I have those same Valentine's Day decorations...I bought them from Current catalog a zillion years ago! :) So funny!

Now that's a boy who has been watching his dad. Quite a reflection on Will.
