Like a cookie..

Just a mommy moment that totally melted my heart.

I took J-man to speech therapy today.
It's been a while since we visited the bathrooms in the building.

As he washed his hands I realized how much he's grown in the time since we started therapy and today..
I said, "You've gotten taller."
He nodded, "'cause I believe God."

"Really?" said I -- wondering how the two connected.

He was so earnest I just grinned and my heart melted - along with my memory. I tried engraving this moment in my brain - but I don't think I succeeded.

He nodded and said - in essence - "You talk to God when you have a bad dream and He changes your bad dream to a good dream." This from the 4 year old with pronoun issues!!

I was just in awe of Him and of God. God's been talking to Him while he's asleep, I think.

He dried his hands - independently, I have to say and kept talking...
.
"So I believe God. And He blesses you ..... Like a cookie."

Sweet.
Very sweet.

Totally had to scoop my heart up and pour it back in.

"like a cookie" - very poetic image there. :)

It is that kind of moment that helps me understand what the Bible means when it says Mary treasured up all these things, pondering them in her heart.
