And BB and I wanted to say Thank You. So we made them a little box of goodies.
A Lip Balm, because of the soft words they say.
Some Nivea cream, because of their soft touch.
Some Soap that smells good, because
A Candle because of the light they give to us by their daily acts of kindness.
I had planned for BB to give them as he saw the staff this week, but he asked for me to help him give them out this morning.
Together we found the Staff. BB said to each one of them;
"Thank you for helping me everyday with my Blood Tests. Merry Christmas"
Every staff member was grateful, said we shouldn't have.
They were so pleased to see BB and so tender with him.
And I realised then.
They care for my son, hold his hand, listen to him and have got to know him in a way that is normally reserved for Parents, Relatives and occasionally the Babysitter.
I realised that they love Big Boy.
