Oh Witness, what a lovely drawing and the music made it so touching. Lucky child and mom to have a dad so willing to care for them and who is so willing to process emotions through his amazing art. And who is the artist on the music?

Thanks for all the comments folks. Kay inquired as to the "creator" of the music that was playing when I made this post. It is John Lennon singing about his son Sean.

Beautiful Boy--I had a gut level reaction! My son was born with severe congenital heart defects and I'd been told all along that they didn't expect him to live--but he became a miracle child. When he was 20 I came home and found a message that he had collapsed at the driving range--he was in really bad shape--I was driving to the hospital alone in the dark and wondering if this was going to be the time--thought I was going to cry so I turned on the radio --- but there was John signing "beautiful, beautiful boy..." I thanked God for my son--cried and drove--overwhelmed with joy and grateful for every minute--no matter what happened.

He made it--again.

He is 32 years old right now--hanging in there and doing so well. Still shocking the doctors. I don't think I have heard that song since that night. I sat here crying at my computer--feeling the same gratitude for having the blessing of knowing MY beautiful boy. You are a man who knows his blessings when he sees them. :)

You are such a good dad. Your artwork is so wonderful and it's great to read about your kids. When my oldest son was really little, he thought there was a monster who lived in his closet. I took a can of room freshner and I would spray the inside of the closet and tell my son it was monster go-away spray. lol! Now he rolls his eyes at me, if I tell that story.
