My 4 year old son Nicholas has the sweetest spirit. There is just something inside of him that carries a deep concern for others. He is also a deep thinker and you can catch him pondering situations through out the day. Last week my husbands Grandmother passed away. She was a wonderful and giving women who lived to be 90 years old. When my husband and I sat him down to let him know that Great-Grandma passed away and went up to heaven to be with Jesus, he took a moment to grasp our words. About a minute later he said "Mommy, won't Grandma hit her head on the ceiling while she is going up to heaven?" How was I suppose to answer that! A couple minutes later he said "Grandma must be petting Maizy and Toby right now" our cat and my Mother-In-Law's dog that had both passed away this year. Hubby and I had to leave the room so he could not see us tear up. The simple words of a child can really blow you away.
We may have lost a life this past week but we gained a new member of the family on Father's Day! My Sister-In-Law gave birth to a healthy and beautiful little boy, Luke. I am so happy for them and I can't wait to hold and cuddle him :) Congrats Jason and Lisa!!!
