So last night I was sitting at my table just after putting the boys to bed. I was, once again, scrolling through the blog looking at Jacob. I was reading his post on day 138 and the last thing he said was "have a great last day of May." Boy was that rough to read! So, my mind started to wonder, I could feel the build up of tears all week long and they just never came but then one tear fell....and you know what happens when one tear falls.....they all just come streaming down! So, Joshua hears me crying. He comes out of his room, and stands at the head chair and asks me what was wrong. I told him that I just missed "Jakey". Wanna know what he said?...he said "Mom, it's ok to be sad, I miss him too. But it won't be long until we see him again." Um, was that my 5 year old that just said that?!?! He curled into my lap, hugged me and comforted me with the Truth....just sit and take that in for a moment and be amazed at what God is doing in the life of my 5 year old. Wow.
Children are a blessing and a gift from the LORD. Psalm 127:3
Was I a mess. No...just sad. He totally understood that it was ok to miss Jacob and that Mommy was not discontent with the situation. He sees God's Hand in all this and that God is good and He loves us and knows what is best for us. It is beautiful to be a part of. It is beautiful to see God using Jacob to show his big brother's the love of our Heavenly Father....real Truth. Just...wow.
