Translated means:

I am Sam !

What else could it possibly mean !

For those of you who arent in geographical proximity to us, Sam is still mostly using his "Verbal Approximation" skills!

He refers to himself as "Yam"...simple and very original.

Tonight as the 3 boys and i knelt for prayer, I sarcastically, (I know, that's not my nature!), asked Sam if he wanted to say the prayer.

He said, "Yeah".

So the other two guys and I looked at each other and shrugged, "this is gonna be good" !

Just then, Sam launched into the most beautiful, fervent prayer i've ever heard.

It was a sincere and VERY verbal demonstration of love and communication from an earthly angel to his Father above.

It lasted a good couple of minutes. I could've listened forever !

We were taught, spiritually, from an angel tonight what prayers are meant to be.

We couldnt understand a word.

If Sam could speak (our language, not his), I wonder if we would be spiritually on a level to grasp, or even deserve to know what he knows ?

Think about that for a second or two..

I whisper in Sam's ear every night as I lay him in his bed, "Thank you for coming to me, Sam."

I realize what a gift he is.

What gifts EACH of our children are.

I'm going to try harder to deserve my gifts.

Goodnite, everybody.

You made me cry Lynette. Remember when Brady could talk? There is hope.

Troy was out of town all last week. I won't bother you until Monday. I will call you.

Love you.

Hmmm, if I had to guess, bet he prayed for you. Lucky you.

I agree with Cathy. Couldn't have said it better myself! :)

Sam is so smart he trying to teach Doc Stamphl how to correctly spell his name: Stamfoo.
His Portugese is far better than mine ever was.
Sam (Yam) always offers his prayers with a smile and Heavenly Father receives them with the same smile.
