Counting to 1000: Gifts #5 - 10 (All About Our Now 9 Year-Old)


Yesterday was his ninth birthday, so I'm dedicating this edition of "One Thousand Gifts" to the gift that Bearclaw is.

5. that he gets lost...in deep thoughts, in books, on his way upstairs to do something

6. his denim blue eyes

7. the way he gets so tickled at his little brother and turns and tells me how much he loves him

8. his willingness to give grace to the mama who tried for too long to have everything perfect and still goes down that road sometimes

Happy Birthday sweet Bearclaw! It is a joy to be your mother and watch you grow (if only you would do it more slowly!).
