Whose EYES Go SOFT For You ?

We were driving back from church last Sunday morning, and I always take my son's little papers they give him after his Sunday School class...and I read them out in the car on the way home.
Sort of quiz him on what he learned. He usually doesn't remember anything, or acts like he doesn't I like to ' feed ' him his answers off the papers.
The lesson that Sunday was about loving your friends like yourself. What love means, how to show it. 
I was reading off the papers, and I then decided to put them down and try to quiz him on the basic visible concept of love from one person to another.
Something that I always notice , and appreciate.
This was my question, by the way...I am in the passenger seat, my husband is driving...and our son is directly behind me. So all answers I received were like a little echo in a valley, back up to me from the back seat.
They were quiet, sure answers.

I first told him how nice it is to be loved, how good it feels.
He agreed.
I then explain to him, that when someone loves you, really loves you...their eyes get soft, they actually get soft-looking. Did he understand  ?
He says Yes.
My love-bug and his Mother's Day roses for me

I then ask him, " Do Mom's eyes go soft when I look at you ?'
Little voice goes, " Yes. "
Does Mavis' ( his bestest friend ) eyes go soft when they look at you ?"
Then I go through his sister's names , each one I ask if they go soft looking at him.
More little Yeses come up from the back seat.
I then ask if his dad's eyes go soft when he looks at him ?
" Yes, " he says.

I look over at my husband and smile, and ask our son one last person, or rather family member about do their eyes go soft , " Do Maxine's eyes go soft over you ?'
A definite ' Yes ! "
I then told him how lucky, how blessed he was to have people's eyes go soft and show their love to him.
I felt like it was one of the few serious lessons of life, about love, that my son got at an early age.
I believe if we all have at least one persons' eyes go soft...some people may have more, but I hope you can appreciate the one or it truly is a precious, priceless gift from one to the other.
Diamonds, rubies, gold and silver cannot match the glow in a loved one's eyes.
Don't let it pass you by, appreciate the softness, every time.
I hope your evening is good , or your morning !
Bless you,
" For thus says the LORD of hosts :' He sent Me after glory , to the nations which plunder you ; for he who touches you touches the apple of His eye. " Zechariah 2:8
