Jackson Stone is 5 years old!

My dearest Jackson,

How in the world are you 5 years old???

You, my dear, hold my heart in the palm of your hand.

The very first time I saw your face I knew what love at first sight truly meant. Your tiny little 5 pound self literally changed who I was, who I am and who I want to be.

Over the years I have been so proud to be your mom. Your kind spirit oozes out of you. Your hilarious nature makes me and others laugh out loud at you all day long. But what I am most proud of, is your love and understanding for Jesus. You know him so well. You have a close relationship with him. You understand his ways better than even your dad and I do. When your brother died, YOU were the one who helped us understand that he was in a better place. You were the one to bring our faith to the forefront. And for that, I thank you.

You bring so much joy to so many people. You are so stinking smart, it amazes me! And you have such a love for people and you love to ask everyone you see how their day is going and how they are feeling. It warms my heart to see how social you are and I hope that you never lose that self confidence and social ability!

Thank you for being the best big brother to your little brothers, Isaiah and Walker. Walker (as well as Isaiah) look up to you and think you are the coolest thing ever. You are such a shining example of who they should aspire to be. Thank you for loving them as much as you do.

My love, I love you to the moon and back.

And I hope you know that when you grow up you know without a doubt that in the story of my life, my kids are my favorite chapter.

-Lee Anne
