One Last Week with JQ

My third son, JQ, is leaving next week and won’t be home for two years.

I have one last week with him and then he is gone to be “all grown up”.

In my patriarchal blessing it said my children would “grow up around” me.


It has been such a blessing to have my JQ here around me, almost 24/7.

He seriously has been such an easy son to love and to raise.

 JQ, thank you for that.

I mean, I wouldn’t mind him staying another 18 years, 24/7 around me.

Really… I wouldn’t mind.


But as everyone agrees, JQ would mind.

I pray when he gets home in two years, and he is finding his way in life

JQ’s way will be very close to our way.

I love our JQ.
