She Made My Heart Melt

Tonight my eight year old Amber asked me to carry her to bed. I was surprised - I can't remember the last time she asked for me to do this. I carried her and gave her an extra squeeze before I put her down on her bed. Then she asked if I would lie with her the way I used to. I again was totally surprised. Again I did as she had asked, and I climbed into bed beside her. After lying there for about five minutes she rolled over underneath my arm and quietly whispered "you are the best mommy ever" and then drifted off to sleep. Tonight this beautiful child melted my heart. I am so thankful she has been entrusted to me.
