Almost every afternoon and evening he asks, “What can I do to help?” …. with dinner, with cleaning, whatever …
Today I sold his old bicycle for $15 and gave the money to him. He gave his sister $5 of the money.
This past Saturday she LET him help her climb a big ole pile of snow in the library parking lot. That’s big. It usually has to be me. She. held. his hand. and let him. help her. WAHOOOO!
That boy is just a pure ball of LOVE. I’m so blessed and grateful we are on this journey together!!

These two awesome little people I know gave me a beautiful gift last night. Thomas and Lillian were playing in the backyard yesterday afternoon when Thomas got a bit too rough pulling her around and she fell. She scraped her foot and tore a hole in her brand new pants that she adores … cause they *sparkle*!!
She was pretty upset with him and he was upset that he did that and upset that he has to be so gentle with her since she falls easily. After I got her calmed down I went outside to check on him. He said he wanted to pay to buy her a new pair of pants. I told him they cost $9 and he said “Awww, that will take all my money.”
He then asked if he could pay for 1/2 of the cost. I told him that sounded fabulous. He went in and apologized to Lillian and told her of his idea. About an hour later they got together in Thomas’ bedroom, happy with one another again, and each wrote and drew something in this card for me. I think the three of us are a perfectly matched trio! xoxo
