celebrating 12 years of accomplishment!

Thinking about, praying about, preparing, expecting, excited, nervous, anxious for months all balled up into one, for ONE day, a special day…..

Layton is a high school graduate!

As I reflect on this day that happened a couple of days ago, I feel like that all that I have been praying about for Layton and the frustrations the past few months have brought it seemed like the Lord gave me a kiss from heaven by making me feel that Layton has grown and is growing into a real man. All in one day, a smile was formed right back into my soul.

We had a barbecue for Layton and this is special makings from Bona herself. Yum!

At the barbecue we started it off with circle that was formed around Layton. People who love Layton and know him gave him a word of encouragement and talked about something of Layton’s character. Then his dad said a prayer over him.

All who came had something to say to Layton that I hope he treasures in his heart forever.

Here is Amanda telling him that he has touched people with the Lord that He may not even realize He has touched.

More words from Poppa and MeMe, to Aunt’s and Uncles, to Cousins, to family friends, friends, peers, brothers, young and old……..

Arms raised in “CHAMP” form…..way to go Layton, proud of you…..

More to come on this subject stay tuned.
