Amber alert // loving to infinity
Last night, I got an amber alert notification on my cell phone.
I was snug, I was sleepy. And a little child had been stolen and was getting farther and farther away from safety in a black car.
I felt sick.
And I started thinking about a sweet little man, my brother.
How he blows me kisses,
giggles so hard he can't breathe,
talks incessantly about Legos and asks me questions like, Does Megamind's mother have hair?
How when I put him to bed, I say I love you to the moon and back
and then he grins and says I love to to the moon and back a million trillion times
and we go back and forth until he says
I love you to infinity
"You beat me," I say.
Everyday, I take for granted the fact that
He is here
He is safe
and I can hug him all I want
I looked at the news this morning and thankfully, the amber alert story had a happy ending and the little child was rescued from danger...but it did not make any less of an impression on me.
I will be thinking hard about how I can be better at
Loving to infinity
