Little ones who captured my heart!

What can brighten my day more than a sweet little girl showing me her gigantic stuffed animal horse?

What can bring a glimpse of pride in my heart when a little boy snuggles at my arm while following my finger sliding across the hymnal in chapel, following each word and singing at the top of his lungs?

How can I say no when my hand is free and a child seems to think it needs company?

How can I choose when both sides of the lunch table wants me to sit with them?

What's a girl to do when she wears a fluffy, furry sweater to school and all the kids flock to her and want to pet her like she's a cat? LOL (Bask in the adorableness)

Of course I saved the best for the last... What do I say when a little boy looks up at me and says you are so pretty!?!

Doesn't your heart want to melt??

College degrees, fancy titles and six-figure salaries are all well and good...but can't hold a candle to spirit to spirit connections. Soak it in. Few ever experience something so precious.

How sweet! I was babysitting my nephew a few days ago, and I asked him if he would like to say the prayer before lunch. So he closed his eyes, folded his hands, thought about it for a while, and then he said " Oh Jesus, thank you soo much for my Aunt Anna. Amen."
They're so precious! :-D
