Thomas just spent his morning in a rocket ship eating chocolate ice cream, cheeseburgers & fries and visiting construction sites! And I thought my mornings were exciting!

Very interesting, enlightening and heart warming dinner conversation tonight …
Thomas will own a restaurant when he grows up and will give me coupons so I can come eat there. He and Lillian will live next door to one another. He will build himself a 2 story house and will build Lillian a 10 story house (she wants a 100 story house but he told her he can’t do that). I can come visit them any time I want. I can’t wait to see how this story unfolds …..

Thomas and Lillian helped me pull weeds this afternoon. Walking inside to get ready for bed Thomas says, “That was fun. Even more fun than playing.” Um, am I doing something wrong?? Hahahaha! Just adore some of the things that come outta this kids mouth!!

“One gift is always free …. LOVE” -Thomas Darnell
I was in Thomas’ bedroom this morning opening his blinds and windows and stopped to take a look at his 2013 vision/dream board. As many times as I’ve looked at it, I’ve never noticed this quote that he hand wrote. I am a believer that we allow messages and people into our lives at just the right moment. It was my moment to receive this message.
At times I choose to mentally bash myself for not giving more by way of money/material items. I needed the reminder that I lavishly share what I have an abundance of ….. LOVE. All ya need is love …. My wish is that this message is received by exactly who needs it this morning!! Thomas continues to show me why we chose each other as parent/child. Overflowing with love and gratitude this Saturday morning …

Email received from Lillian with Subject Line of “Weed Rackets”:
“Weed Rackets, You might ask what are Weed Rackets? So I will explain it. There is weeds, right? And (tennis) rackets,right?”
Now this made me laugh out loud y’all! She’s a hoot!
