Two More Minutes

My friend Delane has a blog called "Let Me Hold You Longer."  As I was putting Isaiah to bed tonight, I couldn't help but think about how she really hit the nail on the head with that title.  My boy is almost too big to even fit in my lap now, but he was curled up with me and had his little head nestled into my neck.  As I rested my head on his and squeezed him a little tighter in the dark, I couldn't help but think, "I'm going to hold him just a little longer."  As soon as that thought went through my mind, my little boy whispered to me, "You cuddle with me two more minutes, Mommy?"

What I won't give to have those moments back in 10 years when he wants nothing to do with me!
