A lesson in love

Happy Birthday, Sweet Bennett!

Bennett has taught me a great love lesson.  

Before he came into my life all of my children and grandchildren  were genetically related to me.   I love them all unconditionally and fully and with all my heart.  When I knew that Bennett would be joining us, I loved him immediately, but wondered how that love would feel.  Would it be a different kind of love?  

Nope.  It is the same.  I love him the same as I love Jonathan, Lily, Daniel and Bella.  I love him unconditionally, fully, and with all my heart.  

I love all of these little people, not because they might possibly have my eye color or bone structure, but because God brought us together to love each other. 

What a blessing!    


  1. I LOVE this picture! it makes me laugh out loud every time I see it! so so sweet!

  2. Oh, me too! Our little Jonah turns one in December. Our love for him is over the top, just like the other five. Our granddaughter, Mia, is due to arrive in 3 weeks and we just found out that Jonah's mama (Chelsea)is expecting a new brother or sister for him in June. They have a heartbeat!
