To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven;A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted;A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and time to dance;A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embraces, and a time to refrain from embracing;A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;A time to rend, and a time to sow; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
being in the water in any capacity. He has taken that love to spending summers fishing and boating in Kokelv,Norway on summer breaks with his maternal grandfather every summer. He spends this special time with his entire mother's family in Norway in the town she grew up in. He is multicultural speaking both languages fluently. This is a special time to bond and acclimate to a completely different culture, a part of his mother’s history. This is important because this is part of who Jakob is.
He seems to have this innate way of adjusting to both parenting styles with ease. He draws strength from both parent’s strengths. He tells me he hopes to one day to make something of himself that will make both of his parents proud. I have no doubt that he will succeed in this mission, if his heart is set on it. He can do the unthinkable if his heart is set on it. He is just at the age where he is trying still to figure out what that is!
compassionate about other people, interested, and easy going. He has a natural way and love of animals. His other grandmother says he is spirited when it comes to sports, fearless and is a great athlete, very determined young man.
He stayed for awhile with his girlfriend there and we all chatted. I know he didn't want to leave somehow sensing it might be a final good bye but yet knowing it must be done. She needed his rest and he must move on with his life. Yet, somehow I think he wanted to prolong the visit. But even Jakob knows all good things some times have to come to an end. But I do believe he knows good things follow also. And he had given her what she needed, the peace of knowing he was happy and his love. To her, that was priceless! She will be on her perch in heaven smiling down on Jakob, I have no doubt, till he joins her one day.
