Heart of Gold

I know every mother thinks their child is the greatest, so I won't deny it. I fall into this category too. I think Cavett's personality is really coming through and it is so sweet. At first, I tossed it off as this is how I am training him to be, this is how we act, etc. So either, I have succeed (which I highly doubt) or it is just in his nature. It is the way God created him and I am sooooooo thankful!

For the past two Sundays, Isabela has come to our church to visit. Each time, Cavett has taken her by the hand and gently guided her on where to go and what to do. It is the sweetest thing the way he takes care of her. See Brenda's post.

Then today as we were leaving the mall, we passed by the Build-A-Bear Workshop Store. Cavett has never been there or done that. But he paused today to look. He nevered asked to go in or that he wanted one. I told him that maybe we would come back another day and make one. His comment was, "I need to make one for my girl." I wasn't sure I heard him right. I asked him, "what girl?" His reply was Anna Grace.

He is always watching out for the best interest of his girls and others. Ok, maybe not ALWAYS. But most of the time. What a loving spirit he has. If only we could all pull away the "me" curtain and focus more on others all the time, what a better place we would live in. At least we are blessed to know that God cares for us in this way.

"And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won't he more surely care for you?" Luke 12:28

So sweet! He sounds like a really great kid and you should be proud of the job your are doing with him since God has entrusted his little life to you and he is molding Cavett through you.
