Sweet Moments...

Just had to share a cute moment...Tonight Jack, Madeline, and I sat down to dinner and I asked Jackson to pray for us. This is something that Jason always did before we ate, so Jackson carries it on for us :) Well usually Jack just says "thank you for the food" and he is done. Tonight he started out with "thank you for the food"...but it was what followed that was just so sweet.
Here is what he said:

"Thank you for our food, and um um oh yea thank you for my friends...I like Chloe and Samuel, and um thank you for sister, and um Jesus please protect my daddy, I really miss him"

Often in my loneliness I forget how much Jackson is missing Jason too. Not only does Jack miss his daddy it is obvious that he thinks about him often.

And just an FYI Chloe is his girlfriend...you should have seen the hug he gave her today!

He is so sweet. I know he has been such a blessing and help to you through all this.

You are over the hill now and Jason will be here with you soon.
Hang in there!

Love you

That is so sweet! He is such a liitle man, We should never under estimate our children they always think and know more than we give them credit for! It can't be soon enough for Jason to be there at the table with all of you! God will continue to be with you and Jason as the time goes by.
Hugs!!
