One thing I love about Madigan, though, is that he is also a "Bundle". A Bundle of love, compassion, kindness, thoughtfulness, adoration (for his brothers), generosity and creativity. He is the one who climbs into my lap, grabs a blanket to put over both of us and snuggles tightly up against me, waiting for me to read story after story out of his favorite books.
Though I have never found any other season of life to be more challenging, I have also never found life to be so full of delight. Every day I catch myself staring at the little people who surround me, wondering how it is possible that they can teach me so much - about themselves, about people (human nature), about God, about myself, about what we do with what we're given.
Three years and three little men. Someone asked me, "Did you ever worry that you might not be able to love them all enough?" I totally worried about that. What I didn't realize is that you love each one of them with your whole heart. It's that simple.
