Worthy of the smile

NickSmileCheck out that smile!  It’s all gift, all baby happy joy!

Don’t be fooled, though…that smile is the result of a mother working her butt off to keep the king happy. Trust me, I know.


And that’s why this little guy makes me so happy, because I know it’s the fruit of real love, the kind of love a child can rely on no matter what. Kudos to my friend Jennifer, who has brought about this happy little boy’s smile, for gawkers like me to enjoy!  Little guy is already a veteran of several surgeries and I don’t know how many ear infections….he had a cleft palate at birth.

Sure, yes, we all have our crosses. But LOOK at that smile!!  I love this kid!! And, his mama too!

Because she had to work so hard, she also gets to enjoy the smiles more. Trust me, I know.


About Kristen West Mcguire

I'm a wife and mom. Sometimes I work, and sometimes I homeschool and sometimes I just meddle, Although I worked at a military chapel for a few years and even taught CCD, most of my life I have been just a pew-sitting, kid-shushing Catholic mom. Since my conversion in 1992, I've been propositioned to join Opus Dei, Regnum Christi, the Neocatechumenal Way, Cum Christo (at least I think that is what Ultreya meant), and at least a few third orders, I just don't go for that extra stuff. I'm a Plain Jane Catholic.
