My Valentine is 11 years old!

I have the very sweetest boy in the whole world.

He is 11 years old, and he is my favorite Valentine today!

Last night son #1 asked me probing questions about cooking, this spiked my interest, as I don't usually hear son #1 talk that much about one subject, he is 11 remember. The yes, no, maybe stage has been firmly in place for quite some time now!
I tuck him in bed last night, say a prayer, and later...much, much later get to bed. At 2am I hear banging around, and since it is just me and the kids that particular night I get up to investigate....too loud to be a burglar, too big to be a small animal, so I grab the closest thing to me a slipper.....tippy toe down the hall and sneak by the creak in the floor. I slither down the stairway sticking tight to the wall, and jump out at the bottom, slipper firmly held high..Who do I spy but my dear p.J. clad son cutting up onions.
I recover quickly from my shock and say .."Um Son it is 2 am in the morning whatcha doing?" He say with a sly little smile "nothing" I say "well perhaps you should skidattle back to bed since it is still very early" He says "ya I kinda thought my alarm was not working right but I didn't want to sleep in"

Off to bed dear child goes. I fall back asleep, then DD #1's alarm goes off at 5 am.....ugh, I am loving the thought but my late night is quickly catching up to me and I mumble "DD you can sleep with me for another hour OK?" She hops in...I am hoping no more alarms go off, and that child #3 has nothing up her 4 year old sleeve.
I get up at 6 am and hear a clatter downstairs once more, knowing what and who is down there I shower and ready for my day.
I emerge from the shower to find a tray laden with omelet, tea, an orange and silverware at my door. My heart melts in a way that can only be described as utter and complete love.
My children are such a blessing, and on this Valentines day I am truly in love with each and every one of my sweet children! Thank you lord for this very special day, my heart is full.

Psalm 113:9 He gives the barren woman a home, making her the joyous mother of children. Praise the LORD!  This was me 12 years ago...look at my life now, I am thankful for these three miracles in my life.
