It’s Sunday and I’m 1000 miles away from my kids. That’s hard with two little girls, but what makes it tormentuous is that today is Delaney’s sixth birthday. I wish I could hug her and tell her that she’s the best!
So, two things…if you read this before church…can you tell my kids that I told you to tell them that their mommy loves them? Also, Mark, it’s your job to read these notes to my girls for me:
Delaney – sweet sunshine! I am so happy that you are six! I wish I was there to celebrate with you, but I want you to know that I love you even though I’m far away today. You are so creative and smart. You make the world a more beautiful place to be in! I love your smile and your gentle spirit. God has great plans for you and I can’t wait to watch you grow up into all that He wants you to be. I’ll be home to snuggle you in a few days!
Kennedy – sugar and spice! I love you, baby! I’m sure by now you are missing mommy so much. I know that you need a big hug and kiss to get you through the day and I wish I could give that to you right now. I also wish that I could see your big smile and your bright eyes. You are so full of wisdom and have such a profound faith already. You make mommy see the world through God’s eyes more often. Be brave for a few more days, my love! I’ll be home soon.
