Last weekend Jared and I got to go on a date. It is a rare occassion that I get to spend one on one quality time with the boys. As it was Xander and David were gone to a cub scout camping trip and Sara spent the night with nana and papa so Jared and I got to have a great time just the two of us. I told him that he could choose where he wanted to eat and he wanted Chinese food and we had a coupon for Jo Jo China Bistro at Stonecrest; which neither of us had been too. Jared told me sounded good to him because he likes trying new places so that's where we went. It was a nice night; upper 70s/low 80s so we ate outside and just talked. On the way home Jared started talking about some very important events that have happened in his life and we ended up just talking and looking through an 'important memory' book for over 2 hours. I was so greatful to have this very special time to just listen to his heart and thoughts about his life experiences. He is growing into such a young man and he has such a tender heart. My prayer for him is that he always rests in the comfort and love of Jesus and knows that there is nothing that he can't share with David and I.
Jared, I love you and am truely blessed that you are my son!
I know I may be being vague but in sharing this special time I am also trying to respect Jared's heart and mind; I hope you understand .
