God's given me a gift. I shovel well. I shovel very well.

Dayton is my favorite hero! He's not your classic hero. He's got a blind date with destiny and it looks like she's ordered the lobster!

He shovels like no other 5 year old can! We got hit with another storm from the west coast today. This is the second time he has spent a considerable amount of time and energy in the cold shoveling the snow off of the drive way! He is the first to put his boots on, grab his hat/scarf/gloves/coat and pick up a shovel. He works hard, bless his heart and the sweetest part is that he encourages me the entire time.

"Good job, Mom" and "You're doing great" are common kind hearted phrases that can be heard while he cheerfully removes the snow from the drive way. He doesn't complain, he makes sure we take turns sharing the shovels and he refuses to go inside until I do! He is a darling little boy!

On the B Side: I am grateful for the strong example of loving service that he is to me! xxox
