We were on the way to school this morning, and I don’t even recall what we were discussing, but at the end of my soapbox/explanation/whatever-it-was, Aaron made that beautiful announcement that means so much to me right now.
“Mommy, I like you!”
It’s important to like people, you see. It is important to love them, yes, but because we are supposed to love our families…it’s not really a choice.
But liking someone…that’s a choice! That’s a vote of confidence above and beyond a vote of acceptance. That’s an in-your-face bouquet of spring flowers on a sunny day. And you know what?
I like that kid right back!!!
