….and I feel sad. Kid 2 left this morning. She’s going to be gone for a month. It’s not that she doesn’t like us, at least I think she likes us. She just has a plan. She wants to be going and doing. So she’s going to Romania. For a month. She’s going with a group of teenagers and they’re going to be helping with Bible schools and working in orphanages. The main thing they’ll be doing is helping to facilitate dental clinics. M’s plan is to love on the kids and tell them that God loves them. Not an easy task in a country that has so many needs.
Here’s a collage of my goofy kid. I could have worked harder on it, but I would have had to crop pictures, so it is what it is.
M is an interesting kid. She’s the most stubborn person I know (other than her Nana!). She’s almost always happy. She has a plan for her life and she’s going for it. She’s 14 and is way smarter than I am (just ask her) but she’s a pretty great teenager. I think I’ll survive her teenage years without adding much more gray hair.
It’s going to be much quieter around here without her. She’s loud! She talks a lot! She pests a lot! And her giggle resonates.
Hey, M, we love you and we’re very proud of you. We’re praying for God’s protection as you work, play, sleep, travel, and love on people.
Can I go cry now?
I do have a knitting distraction this weekend. I have this to play with.
Oh, and the sun is shining for the first time all week. It might just be a pool and grilling day!
