2 things of immense beauty to me this week:

Yesterday while cleaning the kids' room, I was listening to my best-ever Pandora mix (Aron even agrees...which is huge; ask me about it and I'll let you in on the musical magic). Judah was tugging at my leg, begging me to pick him up. When I finally did, he wrapped his left arm around my neck, and with his right hand feverishly reached for my free hand to hold it. In rhythm with the music, he swayed and said, "Dance. Dance!" My little prince asked me to dance for the first time. It was a magical moment for this mama.

And
"The Gates of Heaven"
