reminder

[picture credit to Analiesa]

."If ye have faith
as a grain of mustard seed,
ye shall say unto this mountain,
Remove hence to yonder place;
and it shall remove;
and nothing
shall be impossible unto you"
(Matthew 17:20).

if a tiny ant
can work
to move a mountain

than so shall we.

WARNING:
The following information
may be hazardous to your heart.
I apologize for the duress
but I can not stop him.








....from having birthdays...




Gavin is going to turn 16!




...and regardless of my emotion

We nourish him,
we love him,
we let him grow,

and eventually
we let him go...

we ♥ u

man-boy dont need INSTRUCTIONS

Me: Jer, you doing okay in the shower.

Jer: Yep.

Me: You almost done.

Jer: Nope, it took me like five minutes just to figure out the shampoo* today.
[*new bottle of shampoo in the shower]



Me: Everything okay?

Jer: Yep, just still have to wash my body.


Me: What happened?


Jer:
"It took so long just to figure out the shampooing today
I read the back of the bottle and it said
Wet hair.
Wash thoroughly.
Rinse thoroughly .
Repeat.

I decided not to use that one.
I didn't want to mess it up.

Too many directions."




I am trying to decide
if he could have shampooed
just fine with that Shampoo
if he had not
read the instructions!

He is of the guy gender after all!

“You will have significant experiences. I hope that you will write them down and keep a record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences.” ~Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
