You're Gonna Miss This

Last night my dear hubby was snoring like a bear with a bad case of sinusitis, so after almost two hours, I got up and snuggled into bed with my sweet daughter, without her knowing. Well, when she woke up this morning, she crawled out of bed (as I kept my eyes closed), and she got her softest little teddy bear (aptly named Soft) and put it right next to my cheek on the pillow.

Then she hopped back into bed laying on her side facing me, my back to her. And she started to softly rub my back with her sweet little hands. Then she went under my shirt and rubbed my back with a gentleness that about made me cry. It was something a mother would do to her child. I still pretended to sleep, just enjoying her precious love.

Lord, thank you for this loving, giving little girl that you have trusted me to watch over.

How precious! I adore those kind of moments with my children too. How sweet that your daughter showed you adoration :)

Awww, I would miss that too. My kids love it still when I lay next to them to go to sleep.

How absolutely precious! I miss my babies being little and all snuggly like that. My big girls still snuggle sometimes, but I have some precious grandbabies to do that now.

You are a blessed mom.
