Every Moment a Treasure

Conversation with Matthew yesterday in the van:

Matthew:  "Mom, what would you like to do when we get home?"

Me:  "Hmm.  Not sure - any ideas?"

Matthew:  "Well, I'd like to do whatever you want to do for the rest of the day.  I'd like to make you happy."

Me:  "Wow.  Well, that's a very lovely thought, Matthew, but you know, I hope, that you're not responsible for making me happy.  Besides, you just being who you are is just exactly enough to make me the happiest mom on earth."

Matthew:  "Yeah, yeah, I know all of that stuff.  I don't need to make you happy, blah blah blah.  But we're family and we take care of each other.  And I love you with more than my whole heart, up to the moon and back, more than anything except for God."

What can one possibly add to a most perfect mommy moment!??  Besides, I need to record this, in case I need to remind myself of it, oh, about a decade from now.  How I love that boy!
