My two favorite men in this whole wide world

The two whose names I bring before the Lord the most - both in gratitude and in petition

The two boys that get my kisses

The two men who eat my meals and whose beds I make

The two I worry about most often

He protects me, and I protect him

I adore them both, and I know they adore me

They make me laugh more than anyone else

My thoughts find their way to them all day long


Today I am thankful for my boys.

My cup overflows.

{and since you asked: the shirts are from Lindsey at b.Children's Wear on Etsy. She only makes child sizes, but she might make another adult size one like Ryan's if you ask nicely!}

Duryea - so glad to meet you!!! I tried to stop by your blog but there was no blog to be found so I'll say hello here!

Nice to hear from a Chicagoan! We lived in a suburb of the city for five years and we're jonesin' for a trip back soon!
