Yes Honey

"Mom?"
"Yes honey?"
"Can I have some hot cocoa?"
"Yes honey."

"Mom?"
"Yes honey?"
"Can you read me a book?"
"Yes honey."

"Mom?"
"Yes honey?"
"Can you tie my shoe?"
"Yes honey."

"Mom?"
"Yes honey?"
"I love you."

For those three words I gladly say "yes honey" hundreds of times every day, because each cup of cocoa served, each book read and each shoe tied simply means "I love you too".

  1. and we never stop loving them do we, even when we feel too exhausted to go on because of that "i love you" or "i just want to give you a hug" or the "are you okay mommy"
