This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.
- John 3:16
Message Translation

Well, it has been two weeks since returing to work and it really doesn't get any easier leaving Michael behind. I feel so guilty leaving him with others everyday when he should be with me. I know he is fine and really at this age it is more of an out of sight, out of mind mentality. Each day he greets me with a smile or laugh. I can't wait until he can say mommy! Each day as we drive to work, I pray with Michael. We pray for our day, his teachers, my students our family and so on. I started thinking about how much I love him and that I couldn't imagine my life without him. I get it. God loves me so much more than that. What an amazing love! Even more amazing is how He could give His only son so that we could know salvation. Here I am crying because I leave Michael for 7 hours a day while God sacrificed His only Son for us! I get it now. I have always known my Heavenly Father loves me and how much Christ loves me but now I understand. When I look at Michael I see the miracle he is and I know God looks on us in the same way. To know He is there and His love is so deep is such a comfort to me, as it should be to you. I was also thinking about how innocent Michael is. He has a clean slate, his whole life ahead of him. We too can have that through Christ. We truly are born again and have a clean slate, just like a beautiful baby. The best part is, we are like children, we are His children and we are so loved.
