Many of you know that my son Matthew was born missing half his heart (hypoplastic left heart syndrome), he is my little miracle and I thank Heavenly Father for him every day. He spent the first 3 years of his life a very sick little boy in and out of hospitals all across the western states. He is now 7 and doing well, but he is somewhat delayed and really struggles with things like buttoning his church shirt.
Sunday I was trying to get the kids dressed and out the door to church. Once again Matthew was following me around the house telling me I can’t do it, help me mom. I was trying to get myself and 3 kids dressed and feeling very stressed ( Matt was a work) I ran in bathroom to grab a brush to do the girls hair. When I came back my 4 year old Mckeely was helping her big brother with his buttons. She was telling him, it is ok I will help you
It was just one of those moments that pulled at my heart. As she has grown she now takes on the “big sister” role and is always taking care of him. She is almost a big as him now too….I love being a Mom!
