#Zekeylives – November 1st

I thought it would be so good and healing for my heart, to take this month, the month we celebrate Zekey’s birthday, to reflect on why I am so thankful to have been his momma on this earth, if even only for 4 years, 4 months and 4 days.

Truly, where do I start? Zekey always stood out from the other 3 and not always in the best of ways. He was so mischievous and kept me on my toes. It was so very exhausting but it kept a hard season in the ministry life light and upbeat.

When I found Zeke “cooking”

I’m thankful for that mischievous, little boy who wouldn’t sit still for more than 2 minutes before getting into something.

The laughter we shared with friends and family over the “things he did that day” are countless.

Thank you, my boy, for keeping dark days bright…it is simply what you did, even if it drove me crazy.

    He was always into something and SO fast to get there! He also sat and watched to figure how things worked. I love him and miss him!
