Jake is just the sweetest thing. Sometimes he will say to me (out of the clear blue): "Nana, I'd like to give you a kiss and a hug." Melts my heart into a puddle on the floor! It's so hard to get onto him for something he's done bad, when he looks at me with those big eyes and LONG eye lashes! He is just so stinkin' cute!! (I am totally aware that the "cuteness factor" can and is used as manipulation - and, might I add, it sometimes works!! lol :)
When I think of how much I love him, I thank the Lord for loving us even more than that. "Father: Thank You for loving us with an everlasting love. Thank You for our children and grandchildren. I pray that they will grow into Godly men and women! In Jesus Name, Amen."
