I was going through my book of inspirational things and such, when I found what could be the most profound quote ever

“Convert my love into a soothing pain eraser”

by JTR

This quote was told to me by a very young gentleman one day when I was having a particularly bad moment – the kind that you never want your child to see, but unfortunately they witness – this was that moment.   As I was trying so hard to keep it together, a small voice in the back seat of the car said to me –  “Mommy, it will be okay.  Convert my love into a soothing pain eraser.”

My son Jordan has always had an amazing way with words.  Sometimes Peyton and I look at each other wondering exactly what planet did he come from? Well, I am pleased and very proud to say that this young man is my son and Peyton & Sydnee Pee’s big brother. 

I will say, however, that even the keeper of the soothing pain eraser needs one himself……………

    As much as we try to shield our kids from our pain, I think sometimes it’s good for them to see that we are human, that we have hurts, and that it’s okay to cry. (Even men, regardless of what “society” says.) My son has seen the occasional breakdown and offered his support … as much of a plea as an expression of support. “It’ll be okay Mommy; don’t cry.” As much as it breaks your heart at the time, I think it helps kids be more sensitive to others’ needs as they get older.
