Life Is Just So Daily

Feels Like Home

Somethin' in your eyes, makes me wanna lose myself
Makes me wanna lose myself, in your arms
There's somethin' in your voice, makes my heart beat fast
Hope this feeling lasts, the rest of my life

I walk through the door...and it's night. I've just come home from school, and you should be sleeping, but from the back of the house I hear you call "MOMMEEEEEEEEEE!"
I am so lucky.

You run & jump into my arms, and I get the biggest hug. You talk 90 miles an hour to tell me about a new computer game, and school, and M, and the list goes on and on. And you ask me, "How was your day?"
How was my day?
You're my son, and I am so lucky.

And if you knew how I wanted someone to come along
And change my life the way you've done

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

I change into my jammies & climb into bed. You've already received permission to bunk with us tonight. It's right where you belong. We whisper in bed....still talking about our day...and you fall asleep holding my hand.
As I bring your hand to my lips to kiss it, I smell cookies.
Your hands smell like Nilla Wafer cookies.
Your head smells like little boy, and your hands smell like cookies.
I get to be your mom, and I am so lucky.

Well, if you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I've waited for your touch
And if you knew how happy you are making me
I never thought that I'd love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I'm all the way back where I belong

Oh, Sweet Boy...I love you more than you'll ever know.

What a beautiful tribute. Granted, I'm still hormonal and everything, but it made me tear up. He sounds so sweet.

I miss that little boy smell. On the other hand, I don't miss that just finished a game of hockey smell...

You are a very lucky girl to have such a sweet boy. I bet you'd do your craziest day over if you can come home to him :)

And, I am now a ball of mush....I totally needed this today. Put things into perspective for me...and you know that I needed that after my day. Life is perfect when we go home to our little ones....even if it isn't is, in fact, perfect. Thanks for this...although, I can recognize that it isn't for me. =)
