I received a text from Adam yesterday.
” Paige called home and was sad. She was having a rough day with friends and life. So I picked her up and took her and Hayleigh for an afternoon treat.”
You can imagine as mom being thousands of miles away my heart hurts. When we are near it is hard to see our kids feelings get hurt. I am thankful I have a husband that has a heart that beats for them and desires to hear why they at sad and the depth of their emotions.
As she processed with him about the day and the way her heart felt she shared some deep emotions for an almost eight year old girl.
“Dad, I am talking to God a lot and asking for the things to be different, and it feels like God is ignoring me.”
In adam and I’s brief conversation he told me he responded to her with agreement but more truth. “I too feel as though things aren’t the way we would wish them, but God does hear us and He loves us even if we can’t see Him moving and doing what we are asking!”
These are big things for her to be getting, yet we realize here heart is processing a lot! I miss those girls like crazy. My arms long to hold them and squeeze them and kiss them. Soon enough.
Here are some pictures of tracy and I during our day. We had a blast being together. I am grateful for friends and the joy that they can bring to my days that need filled. The latter picture is of me face timing with the girls before bed.
