I wish I was more like him when I was 11.
I love the way he loves his family.
I love the way he seeks and makes effort to change.
I love the heart he has to serve others, even when he would rather being doing something else.
I love the way he is patient and invests in his relationship with Joey.
I love how he enjoys watching and playing sports.
I love that he will probably read through his Bible more times than his mom & dad.
I love that I know he will always protect his sisters.
I love his brokenness before God when he is convicted of something.
I love his jokes. Even when they are about me.
I love listening to him dream of the Jaguars winning the Super Bowl.
I love that he spends his chore points on time with his dad instead of $.
I love all of the funny Star Wars voices he makes.
I love how excited he is about being at Redeemer Church.
I love that I need to buy another #1 for his cake today.
I love him.
Happy Birthday Jacob! You are a joy! I love you dearly, every day and love that I get to be your mom. You’re the best! (said in a Nacho Libre voice 🙂 )
