Get the Cake!

Quick! Get the cake! I'm getting MARRIED!!

My three-and-a-half-year old just asked me to marry him. In his sweet voice he said, "Mom, could you marry?"

I answered, "Yes!"

Then he looked deep into my eyes and said, "know why I wanna marry you? 'Cause you're special."

I just hugged him tight. I'm taking advantage of this overflow of affection. One day, far too soon, he'll actually understand what it means. I'm going to soak it up while it lasts.

marriage is about being with someone so special, you can't imagine life without them. isn't it wonderful that your little one has picked up on that very important fact. keep praying for the girl that will win his heart; for her commitment to Christ, purity of body, soul and spirit and a deep love for your son. it is never to early to pray for the spouses of our children, as you daily pray for them.

dm, this has been on my mind. I want the women my sons marry to appreciate the wonderful men they are sure to become. Not that I think I'm an exceptional parent, LOL. Just that God's grace covers all. :-) You bet I'm praying.

Isn't it funny the things kids say. LOL It just warms your heart when they say things like that.

They are so innocent. And yes, all to soon they will grow out of it. Not that they won't love you just as much but they will show it differently. At times you may wonder if it's love at all.LOL But you hang in and they grow a little bit bigger and you find that they do love and appreciate you.

At 3 and 1/2 they only love as their little hearts can, with all their being.

Just gives you warm fuzzies to hear things like that.

ym, yeah they fill me with warm fuzzies everyday. Children have the ability to love without reservations! Precious.
