Dear friend God brought into his life. I love how each kid gets that special friend to encourage one another!
Don't you just love this kid's handsome smile? What a kid. He turned 11 and if you don't mind I will just just muse for a moment. I was so proud of how selfless my kids were when Braveheart first became ill 2 years ago. They stopped everything and gave up things only caring for B and his welfare, understanding his prioritized needs. We strove to give as much attention to the other kids as we could and my mom was mostly living here to help out. (thanks mom) but suddenly last year we realized something happened to this precious little boy. We aren't sure what, but emotionally he was troubled. Part of this was his personality, true; he really has always been a 'strong willed' child that has given me a run for my money, but we began to see some real issues arise in him...
After much prayer and love and training and work and more prayer..we are so pleased with how he has come along. So much joy back in his heart and countenance! Praise God!
Now, can I just brag on my man for his 'gifting' love language?? We were getting all the kids some swimming supplies for birthdays this year, can you see his back pack? He loves that thing. (I got these for $2 each on clearance) Birthday boy keeps telling me about that and all his gifts. He is even loving that hoodie he requested himself..can you say hot? Well, my husband wrapped each gift up inside each larger gift so that each time he opened one he had a surprise inside! The whole family had a blast wondering if there was yet another gift inside! Boy, was that a hit. Damsel prayed that night, thanking the Lord for dad's great wrapping idea..it was so precious! The kids are requesting more of that one. You're the best dad..but I didn't get a pic this year..soon I will though.
