~Remembering Jarrod~

Today I'm writing a post a little different than my other posts.

It's a date that is very special to our family. Twenty eight years ago today was a day of great joy for my husband and myself because our son Jarrod was born. This little guy was a boy who always had a smile on his face. He loved life and had a great sense of humor, he had us laughing often.

I am thankful today for the four years he was in our lives and I had the privilege to be his mom. I'm thankful for his love for the Lord and how just before going into the operating room for his open heart surgery he said "Jesus will take my hand". Those were his last words to us as parents and because of the Lords' amazing grace he's now safe in the arms of Jesus.

  1. What a sweet, sad, inspiring post. I'm glad you are able to share your memories of him with us.

  2. Oh Joy, I'm so sorry! My prayers are with you!
    Hugs Kristin
