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!!!
