A Golden Day for Mom:

I looked up at my little boy whose arms were stretched out to me and a warm surge of golden reality flooded me.

This is MY son. I am HIS mom. Someday he will be a man–a husband, a father–making his way in the world. But today he is all mine. My own baby boy–and all he wants is for me to hold him.

I shut the computer, swooped him up into my arms and kissed the heck out of his still chubby cheeks.

“Where have you been all my life?” I asked him.

“I’m wiiiight here, Mama!” He chirped back.
