conversations with jakob- third ones a charm

this is a short conversation, one i didn't know if i wanted to share or not just b/c of the emotion that surrounds it, but it made me smile all over, so here goes.

a little background history- jakob has asked several times in the last few months, where my mom is and where b's mom is. so we tell him where they are, "nonna and grandmother are in heaven with Jesus." along with that conversation starts many about Jesus loving us, going to heaven, whose parents are whose..etc, etc. 

the kids and b, built and planted a small garden on saturday, which prompted conversations of granddad (b's dad) because he is a master gardener and then, where is grandmother... and just like it was second nature to him, jakob spoke up and said..

"you know mom, pretty soon, Jesus is gonna come get us and take us to heaven and you'll get to see your mom...that will be cool, right mom? and dad, you'll get to see your mom too." 

see? i told you. smiles all over.
