Proud Mama Moment

OK...I shouldn't be so proud rather I should be thankful but if I'm honest then I'm both. Today after being cooped up in the house for a couple of days (no sickness...I just didn't want to fight the rain) Xan and I ventured out to get a few groceries. We were driving along and out of the blue this was our conversation:
Xan: Momma
Me: (after turning down the radio) Yes, Xan
Xan: I love God.
Me: (Smiling) Me too Xan...and He loves you too.
Xan: Just like my Bible says Momma...I love Jesus.
Me: (Tearing Up) Yes....just like the Bible says. We love Jesus because He loved us.
Xan: I love you Momma.
Me: (Silence and adjust the rearview mirror so she doesn't see her weak mother crying over this ordinary drive to Walmart.)

Have I told you lately how blessed I am to be this little girl's momma.

What a sweet girl, and what a precious moment.

I have three words to say when friends consider an overseas move: You Must Go! I was so afraid, but it really was a
once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Keep me posted...
