I adore my son. I know none of you that know me is surprised by this bit of news. Yesterday, I got to watch him play baseball, sing with his precious wife, and talk baseball with his Granddad. It is one of my greatest joys in life.
When God gave Nathanael to Bill and me, I was amazed at the feelings that surged in my heart everytime I held him. No one, not even my sweet, precious husband, had ever loved me so unconditionally, or needed me so completely as that sweet little infant did. We had lost our first baby in the fourth month of pregnancy, so Nathanael was like a life preserver to a drowning man to both Bill and me. I clung to him, I poured my heart and soul into him, and he loved me for every bit of it. As the girls were added to our family, they just joined in the adoration of their brother with Bill and me. He never seemed a bit spoiled by all the attention, he just took it as his purpose in life to be our sunshine.
So, I got to enjoy my bit of sunshine this weekend. How good God is!
