Our son John is learning to read and write. He has taken his new skills very seriously
and uses them all the time now. Many times throughout the day, he will write me
little love notes. I treasure every one of them and am incredibly grateful that he
has such a kind and loving spirit.
One day, we were out at our favorite garden center. John asked me to turn away and
not look at what he was doing until he called me. humm, OK. So when he led me over
and told me to open my eyes, I saw the heart he drew in the rocks for me.
Couldn't have asked for a more wonderful surprise. I often feel so inadequate in the
responsibility to help shepherd this precious child's heart. I'm watching him transition
from a little boy into a beautiful young man right before my eyes. Time is passing so
