I never knew...

I never knew the affect a smile has on me,
until I didn't see one on my son's face.

I didn't know how nervous I would be 
when every photo I received,
my son still couldn't find his smile.

I didn't know how worried I was that my 
boy was hurting so badly that he couldn't 
find any good around him. 

I didn't know how scared I would be 
wondering if he would give me that same lost look,
and not accept me.

It does a momma's heart good to wake up this morning to 
and email of my 5 year old boy 
smiling a genuine fun loving smile! 
Having fun with the children around him,
and playing with his brother, friends and a teenage white boy.

And a BIG, BEAUTIFUL smile he has!

Ohhhh!  It does a momma good!
(Now if we could get him out of those pink crocs and get him some pants that fit.)
