What does it take to get a boy who grows up to be a man ( a Senior in college!) that is this sweet?
I really can't tell you.
All I know is that, if you are very lucky, there comes a moment when all the long days of loving, worrying, fussing, stroking, laughing, yelling, tickling, scolding, tousling, hugging and singing, the long days of talking and listening, of holding on and letting go, they all find their way back to you and slip, an unexpected guest who knows and loves you back, inside your heart.
