I love you

Just got back from a glorious park day with some friends....Chai Tea in my belly, and Bennett is going down for a nap. I get time to myself and want to cuddle up to the Word and hear GOD tell me things...i want to hear Him say He loves me. Rarely do i hear that ( never audibly)....but today i can just feel it. I LOVE YOU. and i want to tell Him that back. Dont know why im sharing this intimate feeling on my blog..but there it is for the 5 people who read my blog to see. Somedays i feel anger, sadness, confussion...etc. But today, for some reason, i feel love and want to tell the people that read this blog that i love them too. You who care about my son...our life in the Mann world, enough to read my thoughts talked out. I love you Dad...Mom, Vanessa, Kelli, Sharon, Caroline, Allison, Elaine, Kierstin, Ariana ( not in that order and not limited to)...Most people cant tell everyone that reads their blog that they love them...cause you have more friends than i do. ha ha....but i get this rare opportunity to share the love here in black and white words to my bloggy readers. I can hear Bennett in his crib quietly saying...."MA-mee" .."maaaaMEE! mommY!...emphasizing different syllables of the word. Its like music ... a sweet little voice saying my name. Not crying ....just exploring the word and its various syllables. Today i put him in the car and gave him his teddy bear....which he scooped up in his arms and said. " I love you" to the bear. Then he proceeded to give the bear his pacifier. UG! i LOVE this little boy. With all the fabric of my being...

All else will fade away...but three remain...and the greatest is LOVE.....

i love you too Mandy! i didn't read this until just now, so when i told you on Saturday how much your blog encourages me, this post wasn't the reason...but thank you. You are one of my most honest friends, and that's a quality i value above almost anything. xo.
