I had possibly the best moment of my entire life today...I'm not even sure how to put it into words. I just know it was a gift meant just for me.
It started in the kitchen doing one of my least favorite chores---the dishes. Rowan was happily playing in his bouncy seat while I was washing dishes. It was just the two of us at home. I had some music playing in the background too. When I was done with dishes, I got down on the floor in front of him and started singing along with the song. It was past the first verse of Chris Rice's version of Come Thou Fount...so needeless to say I didn't know the words. Skip skip went the iPod and it came to Great is Thy Faithfulness. This one I knew a bit better, so I started singing along. The whole time, Rowan had one of my fingers in each of his hands and was happily moving his arms to the music. What made it even better, is that he was smiling bigger and brighter than I have ever seen and it seemed as if he was wanting to sing along with me. It was so very special and my heart exploded with happiness. I know...because it spilled out of my eyes.
For a moment, I wished someone was there to capture the moment with a video camera. But afterwards, I was so glad that moment was mine...something that only Rowan and I got to share. It was such a gift, and something I am so very very thankful for.
