Dear Benson,

You rested your head on my chest and I instantly felt like I was the most blessed aunt in the world. Here I had spent the whole day working, running errands, dealing with an exhausted body from the lack of sleep I got the night before, pulling hairs out of my head with each new "to-do" that came on to my list, and stressing over packing and moving all in one night. That's when your precious little figure crawled into my room with the biggest smile on your face reminding me "that it will all be okay." I picked you up and held you close. I started making animal sounds and sounds of my own that would make me look like a fool if I didn't have a baby right in front of me - but, it made you laugh and that's what mattered. I started humming Beauty and the Beast songs while swaying you back and forth. That's when you fell silent and rested your precious head against my chest.

How lucky am I to have this precious little man be a reminder of the good in life in a moment I needed it? Even though these moments were short-lived due to the fact that my moving-boxes were calling my name, the feelings carried on with me the rest of the night. Thank you sweet child of God:)

Sincerely, Ashlyn
