It was a Sunday. We were getting ready to go to church and Silas was sitting silently in his swing. I was tired and not feeling like a good mom. I don't remember why. I just remember that feeling and knew I didn't want to go to church, but also knew it was the right thing to do.
Right before we left, I bent down next to Silas and smiled at him and asked him if he was ready to go.
That was when he looked me in the eyes and gave a huge smile in response to my question.
