{It's the Little Things}

Yesterday evening we went over to some of our good friend's house for some swimming, bbq'ing and hanging out. We had the best time! I am now convinced that pools are the saving grace for wearing a child out and getting him to sleep well at night. ;) Mason usually sleeps in his bed an hour and a half before he wanders into our bed, but last night he slept in his bed until 5 am. That hasn't happened in a while. 

When we got home it was fairly late for a week night so Nate and I told Mason we needed to go straight to bed. Of course he asked for books. I was so tired and didn't want to read, but when he picked the Easter story I couldn't say no! This book is a favorite of my sweet boys {and mine}. And a chance to read about Jesus? Yes, please! 

Mason's eyes were very heavy before we laid down so I didn't figure he would last long. But as soon as we finished the book he started asking all kinds of questions about Jesus, Heaven, and praying and talking to God. Oh my sweet boy! I could talk to him about Jesus forever. 

And before he rolled over and went to sleep his last words were...

"I want to live for Jesus and do what he wants me to do. I want to go to Heaven."

Oh, me too my sweet, sweet boy. Me too.

  1. That is the sweetest thing I've ever heard. I can about imagine how big your heart swelled up when those words came from his mouth.
    And, I've LOVED seeing all the pool pictures and videos of Mason. He's a little fish. :)

  2. This shared story, oh my gosh Crystal. Tears in my eyes! What a sweetheart and you are a great mom for knowing the importance of that time and those conversations together!


Thanks for the comments! Hope you are having an amazing day!!
