The other night I was sitting on my bed getting ready for work and he came in, exhausted, and laid down on my bed. He got all comfy in my blanket and then said "oh, I almost forgot." and he got out of bed and knelt down and said his prayers. My heart melted.
Last night as I was getting ready for work, he was reading me a book. Then he said "after I'm done with this book I'm going to read Harry Potter then I'm going to read The Book of Mormon."
And finally, as I left last night for work, he ran out to the car, kissed me on the cheek and said "I love you with all my heart!"
I honestly couldn't be more proud of my boy. He has such a sweet spirit and a truly amazing testimony that makes my testimony grow and my heart swell. I admit I am terrible about kneeling to pray. I lie in bed and pray most of the time and for him to kneel next to my bed, without being prompted, really set an example for me. And the fact that he has The Book of Mormon on his list of books to read is amazing. I am slowly reading the Book of Mormon but maybe we should read it together. I believe what was said in his blessing is already coming true. I know that some day he will be a fantastic missionary and I pray that he will stay this sweet boy forever....no matter how big he gets. :)
