Q49

*e*'s 49th question - What is the sweetest thing anyone has done for you?

It might sound sad but there is no one thing that really stands out as the sweetest thing. I do know that Riley is such a sensitive and kind soul and so in tune with what is going on around him emotionally that he often knows just the right thing to say or do to turn my day around. Example: I had been given an ipod a number of months ago but was unable to get anything downloaded on to it despite many, many wasted hours at the computer. Two weeks ago after a particularly frustrating hour, I told Riley to take the ipod and throw it out into the snow because I never wanted to see it again. He took it, but hid it until the next day when he asked me if I was ready to have it back. Please don't call child services.

Now that is one very wise beyond his years young man!!! You're setting an amazing example for him...he sees you when you are like he is and vice versa and he's learned how do that from you!!

Did you ever get things downloaded to the ipod?

If one is blessed with children, some of the sweetest and most meaningful gestures in life originate with them.
Bless them.
And Riley is such a sweetheart...

Riley is one of those *old souls* ... my beautiful god-daughter is one and I think the cute, 6 month old Mr. Benjamin is one also. Time will tell. Very, very special people.
