Love You, Forever


I've had this book for years. Since way before Jboy was born. I don't remember if I bought it, or if my mom did. Maybe someone else. I'm sure I read it at some point back then.

Tonight I read it for the first time since Jboy was born. Whoa. By the end of the book I was a sobbing mess. Jboy kept looking at me & asking "what's wrong with your mouth"? Ha! I was trying so hard to not let him see me cry that I must've been doing something strange with my mouth.

Have you ever read this book? It's the story of the relationship between a mother and her son, though it certainly applies to moms/daughters too.

Throughout the book I just kept imagining Jboy & I as the years go on. He's already growing up way too fast for my taste, and this just made it more real.

If you haven't read it, run out & buy a copy. You won't regret it. It would make a great gift for a new mother or a friend who's expecting. A box of tissues would be an appropriate (and necessary) companion gift.

YES, a wonderful book!!! I got you that just before Jonathan was born. I try to get that book for new moms. And yes you do need a bit of tissue when reading.
Love you, Mom

I can't read that book! I turn into a blubbering mess, it's not pretty!

The little boy on the cover looks a smidgen like JBoy too. Must make it even more difficult to read for you!

It really is a great book though.

Almost can't even read it now. So sad.

Happy, but sad.
