Anyone who knows me well knows that I am a bit of a Facebook junkie. I love sharing bits of my life with family and friends I am unable to see or talk to regularly. However, I have noticed that I often use Facebook as a vent for the frustrating days we have with Luke and seldom do I really share what a beautiful soul I have the honor to raise. For example, Luke has developed a new attraction to cutting things up. Here are a couple of pictures that I posted to Facebook:
I am so quick to share the aggravating moments, but often fail to share the sweet ones. So, in an effort to counter all of my whining posts, I want to share this beautiful one.
Last Saturday was almost magical. Luke was a sheer delight to be with. He painted all the pieces to the wood tractor with very little support. He was so patient and even waited for one coat to dry before putting on a second coat. After all the pieces were painted, he used screws and a screwdriver to assemble it. All I did was start it through the hole. That project took a couple of hours and he was so attentive and excited about it. After we finished, he found some pics of tractors we had printed out and spent the next few hours painting them. It was a beautiful and magical day – almost like a window opened to the sweet little boy trapped in a generally uncooperative body. Lest anyone ever think otherwise based on my frustrated posts, I adore my boy. I love him with all my heart and just yearn for more days like these!
