My mommy rewards...

*sweet sticky kisses from suckers that were rewards for going to the potty(L) and memorizing bible verses (C & L)

*listening to big sister instruct little sister in a sweet loving way to "let me help you, baby"

*listening to little sister say" I need kiss" to big sister

*listening to big sister then say to little sister, "Sissy, I love your loves!!" :)

*watching little brother sit in the floor with his sisters as they stroke his hair while watching a movie or playing blocks

*my oldest daughter saying to me, "Mama, you are the best place in the world"

*watching the love of my life have tickle wars with all 3 of our children at the same time

*a drowsy some baby, some little boy(sniff.sniff.) burrowing his face in my shoulder after his bath

*checking in on my babies and watching them sleep, their little chests rising and falling softly and their little thumbs tucked in their mouths (they are sleepy thumb suckers, all 3 of them)

*crawling under the covers and holding the one true love of my life....the wonderful amazing Daddy of the 3 precious miracles God has loaned us....

and I sleep. Peaceful and content and whole.
