Tonight we said our regular prayers ending with a list of
people to bless. Jordan likes to echo back the names in agreement. Normally I include Shawn’s name in our routine. Tonight I didn’t mention him. After I said, "Amen", Jordan looked at me intently and said, "Let’s say ‘Daddy’". I learn so much from him. The tender heart does not forget.
