This verse has so much significance to me. When I found out I was going to be a mother at the ripe old age of seventeen, this is what I held in my heart.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
And God fulfilled that promise to me. My boys are my life. They are my little blessings (tear). I told you I would need a box of tissues!
If you are wondering why Kevin has a pacifier in his mouth and why Caleb is reaching down his throat to retrieve that pacifier. Well, it was a little game Daddy used to play with Caleb's "Dee Dee." Kevin would steal it, hide it in his mouth and spit it up in the air. Caleb would crack up, big ole belly laughs! Okay, I guess it does sound a little gross now that I am typing it out.
Caleb and his very, very best friend Dog. And by the way Dog still resides in Caleb's bed to this day. Dog has been to Idaho numerous times, Disneyland and even Hawaii. If you ask Caleb, Dog is going to college with him and will be his best man at his wedding. His wife will just need to except the fact she must share her bed with two guys.
And then there were two. My little Deacon was born. He was so little and sweet. Well, not so little at almost 9 lbs. but sweet none the less.
One word to describe Deacon? SMILES! Of course that would not be my description of him these days. I would have to say the word STINKER best describes him now.
I am so blessed! Thanks for looking!
