-sweet son of mine-

When we were all playing in the creek Sunday afternoon, Judah asked me to throw the boogie board across the water to him. I tried, but it didn’t “fly” the way I expected, and it ended up floating in the middle. We both waded out to get it and I jokingly said, “I know. I’m a complete failure.”

Judah looked at me like he thought I believed what I’d said, and in a very encouraging (and grown-up!) tone of voice, he said to me, “No, you’re not, Mom!”

So sweet.

That kid’s gonna make a great camp counselor someday.


About ruthie.voth

Wife of one, mother of four, friend of many. Lover of details, color, good conversations, finding balance, and being honest. Passionate lover of a well-crafted sentence - even more so if it's witty. Weird blend of cynical optimist. I'm the worst kind of woman. I'm high maintenance, but I think I'm low maintenance. Somehow, people still love me. Must be grace.
