We Are Family…

“We are family! Get up everybody and sing!
Everyone can see we’re together
As we walk on by
And we fly just like birds of a feather
I’m not telling no lie
All of the people around us to say
Can we be that close
Just let me state for the record
We’re giving love in a family dose, yeah!”

Mattie has a family. I’m not sure he can possibly comprehend at this point the magnitude of what “family” means. I’m not sure he has any idea of the squeezes, kisses, and accidental overdoses of love that are about to be poured out on him. I want him to know his family. We take the kids in to see him as often as we can. Sometimes one at a time, sometimes a mass outpouring. He is well adored.

The Littles ask all the time, “When Mattie come home!” We drive by the hospital every Sunday on our way to church and they all wave now without being prompted and say, “Hi Baby Mattie!”

I can’t wait until that sweet boy is home and we can truly “give love in a family dose!”

“We’re givin’ love in a family dose!”
