"Children are the hands by which we take a hold of heaven"

I had a really sweet experience the other day.
I pretty much had a melt down a couple mornings ago because I had been on the phone with my insurance company all morning...being bounced around from person to person and never getting answers. Needless to say, it was the last straw. I felt like everything was out of my hands and nothing was working out. I started crying of course out of frustration and desperation. Jace walked up to me and touched my face and then gave me his favorite blanket, teddy bear and juice. (the things that give him comfort) After he saw it didn't work, he picked up a CD and handed it to me. I was puzzled. I looked at it and it was the cd I burned a couple days ago for young womens: I am a Child of God/I have a Savior. Then I cried even more because he knew what I needed to hear. Somehow he knew that music calms me and reassures me. I listened to it and all my fears and worries were replaced with a renewed hope and faith and regained knowledge of my Heavenly Father's love for me and my family.
Jace was an answer to my prayer that day.
(Thanks Christie for inspiring this post)

What a wonderful story! Jace is so sweet! It is amazing how sensitive and caring these little children can be. I hope you get the insurance stuff all figured out. That can be SO frustrating and stressful. Thanks for sharing your sweet experience.

What a sweet little boy! I love how children try to cheer up their parents when they are upset!

Isn't it so sweet how sensitive children are to people's emotions. Jace is such a little sweetheart to try to calm your worries away. Good luck with the insurance... that's one thing in life I just do not like!

That is so sweet. Like I said - James is my biggest comfort & frustration. I think we need them way more then they need us.

I love little moments like that. It is ironic how kids are what make us crazy but also what keep us sane.
I found one tmplate I kinda liked called fiels of daisies. I just want it to be simple where people can see what is written.
