love song

October 1, 2010 at 10:32 1 comment

anne had never told me that she loved me until a few weeks ago, and she’s 4½.

anne has also been known to break out in song and dance at any given moment, in any given place.

this is the love song that she just spontaneously created and performed for me, from the bath tub:

“i love my mommy,
i’ll love her forever.”

i interrupted here to confirm “you love me?!”
“yup”.
then back to the song:

“i love my mommy,
i’ll love her forever,
forever and ever, because i love you.”

“i’ll love you when you die,
because i’ll love you forever,
and even when you die,
i’ll still love you.”

she repeated that second verse several times before switching her affections and the song over to the toy whale that shared her bath.

i’ll treasure it always.  always and forever, even after i die.

    I love the song! Spontaneous declarations of love are so much more meaningful anyway.

my life in pics

some people came for the food, i went for the company. #youthministry #babyfix beautiful day for playing with guns 🔫 i know that i'm not easy to love: i can't be baked for, cooked for, or touched. i'm independent to a fault, and yet, you all keep finding ways to cover me with love and encouragement. big public thank you to my family and friends for persistently showering me with blessings, encouraging texts, and for continually bringing my family to God in prayer.
