Tonight while putting Dawson to bed I was talking to him about how he is just getting so big and that in 1 year he would be getting baptized. We started to talk about the covenants he would be making and how we renew those covenants every Sunday when we partake of the Sacrament. I asked him if he knew what those covenants were. He then recited the Sacrament prayer! I called in Bryan to listen. He then recited both Sacrament prayers. Bry had to help him a little with the water prayer. It was such a tender moment. Tears were rolling down my cheek and I can't really describe how I felt. I don't know why I am surprised, this is the kid that constantly surprises me. It shouldn't shock me that he really does pay attention even though it appears other wise. I am just in awe at the little young man he is! I am so grateful for him.
