There is a light that never goes out

Last night Jonas fell asleep on the couch and we were faced with the task of trying to transition him into his bed. I took I the task and headed upstairs carrying our 45 lb 3.5 yr old that freaks out screaming whenever he wakes up from a nap. I also had to get a nighttime diaper on him- I used orange Gatorade as a bribe when when it came to diaper time. Jonas than looked at me with tired tear filled eyes and asked me to lay with him. How could I resist? I climbed under the comforter and snuggled up to him and starting singing him "you are my sunshine" he looked T me and smiled a way I don't often see anymore. And at that moment I prayed that if the world ended I wanted it to be at a moment like that.
