On 5.29.21, I feel like Holy Spirit led me to text these questions to Ethan while at the gym. (This idea could’ve never come from my brain!)

Some of his answers tickled me and others made me be like, “dang, I didn’t know this is what my son liked!”

In celebration of his 12th birthday today, I wanted to share the questions I asked and his responses.

Happy birthday Pook. Mama loves you more than you know!!

What’s the best advice I’ve ever given you?
God don’t like people that lie.

(Correction Ethan, I’m pretty sure I say, “God don’t like nobody telling stories…I say stories instead of lie since my mama raised us like that word was bad, lol)

Not much☹ But I forgot why to give (His nana gave him the perfect explanation as to why, lol)

I opened a savings account for you. What amount do you hope to have in it by the end of the year (Dec 31)? $50.00 (what’s funny is the opening amount I put in there is already $50.00, lol)

Choose the top TWO things you love most from these things:

-Encouraging words/people saying they love you

hugs and/or kisses


spending time together 

-someone doing you favors

(My little boy loves the hugs & kisses and spending time together ❤️)

Ethan, mama loves you so much! Today is your day and I’m gonna make this day and weekend alllll about you. God blessed my life with you. I get to be your mom. I get to hold your hand. I get to lead you to loving Jesus. I got the hardest yet most rewarding job ever!!!

God, bless my Ethan today and everyday. Show me how to parent him, how to protect him, how to love him. Show me how to speak his love languages. Help me to slow down and watch him grow! May I make you smile with the love I have for my little boy. We love you, God!

With my God-given gift of writing (along with some humor, lol) I hope to encourage and empower people by just simply laying out my heart.
