Redeemed in a Heartbeat

A random conversation with my pre-schooler (who actually just finished Kindergarten under my homeschooling tutelage):

Dear Daughter: "Mommy, how many hearts do we have in our bodies?"

Me: "Just one, Honey."

Dear Daughter: (...looooooong pause) "...Well, I think I have TWO hearts in MY body, because I love you so much that ONE heart can't hold it all!"

And with that, the most challenging year yet of my dear daughter's life--the year that made the "terrible two's" look like a cakewalk--was all worth it.

Oh my goodness, that is too sweet. See, that sort of thing makes it all worth it!

She may have two.

That is cuteness on a stick right there!

Ok ... that made me grow another heart. :)
