I hadn't planned to do a post today, as I thought I'd give ya'll a break from me for a couple days :-). Oh well, there goes that plan, lol.
Today, Jayla and I were out running errands. And I can tell when she gets really quite, she's either asleep or she's thinking about something she wants to ask me. This time the latter was taking place. And here's what she came up with:
J- "Hey mom? Guess what?"
M- "What sweetie?"
J- "Do you know that I love you being my momma?"
M- "You do?" "Well, I love being your momma!"
J- "Hey mom, you know what?"
M- "What baby?"
J- "I remember when I was a baby up in heaven, I asked God if He would give me to you. Because I just knew that you would love me and take care of me."
(OK...now I'm trying not to drive off the road because I can't see through my tears.)
M- "REALLY?" "Well how did you know about ME?"
J- "Oh MOM! I could see you , silly!"
M- "You could?" "Wow, that's pretty cool!"
J-"Yep, I saw you driving around fussing about traffic and I thought you were pretty."
Isn't she the sweetest thing? I love when she and I have times like that together. She asks the most amazing questions and seems to be so much wiser than her 6 years.
I don't doubt that she has some memory in her pretty little head of being in Heaven. She makes comments like this quite often. You know, comments that make you wonder if there's really some truth to her thoughts and memories.
I cried...yet again, when I read B.E.M.'s comment on my last post (see below). How ironic that she make mention of God choosing me to be Jayla's mom? Amazing!

This is such a sweet post! I love the two pictures to compare and see how much she's grown.... Jayla has grown into a beautiful little girl and i think god made the right decision when he asked you to care for her!
