Nothing more beautiful

For Mother’s Day, Dylan gave me one of those adorable books they make at school and my heart went pitter patter as I looked at all of his lovely thoughts and pictures.

But the last one…the one where he says what he would give me if he could give me any gift…that one made me gasp with awe and gratitude.

Even in my wildest imaginings, I could never think up a nature center as my gift. How perfect and breathtaking!

In my world, there could be nothing more beautiful than this.

A gift

Dylan–my dreamer, my nature lover, my poet, my gentle soul–thank you for knowing exactly what I would want to receive. xo

    How incredibly sweet and insightful. You have such a wonderful son! Well, actually two wonderful sons. It’s a nice reflection on you dear Rachel!

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! This made me feel such joy today. Your son knows you so well. When I picture your home in heaven, I picture God giving you a nature center too (with a table in the middle of the garden piled high with chips and salsa). Is he right when he says your favorite place to go is South Carolina? I sure hope so. Hugs to Dylan and to you.
