“Is it okay if I hug the flowers?”
“Of course, sweet little man. I hope you always hug the flowers.”
I hope I never forget the walks. I hope I never forget the toboggan and glove despite the 85 degree heat. I hope you never notice that you are the only one who is simultaneously prepared for a blizzard and a swimming lesson. I hope you approach your whole life with the same enthusiasm as our morning walks. I hope you are never too busy to follow the butterflies and investigate every tiny creature that crawls across our path. I hope you always sing songs with made up words. I hope your whole life reflects the perfection of a Creator who designed you to bring joy to this mama’s heart and glory to His name.
I hope I never forget the innocence of a little boy who wants to hug the flowers.
