Yesterday, Shelby was having a difficult morning.
I was busy getting breakfast ready and getting everyone where they needed to be.
She was crying because nothing was going right for her.
Clothes not right
Breakfast not right
Hair not right
Backpack not right
Tired Tired Tired
Michael came in and pulled her to him and snuggled her on the couch. He whispered calmly to her and just held her for a while.

Then she explained,
"He has one whole heart for each of us."
What a sweet way to explain a father's love
