    Maranatha (2) brought me her little Dora play phone yesterday and told me that her “daddy wan to talk you”.

    I want to talk to him to!  That has to be one of the most difficult phone conversations I’ve ever encountered.  Her big brown eyes just watching me to see what I would do.

    Oh my heart aches!  Any time we were away from Daddy for an extended length of time we made sure the kids had a chance to talk to him on the phone.  But I can’t just call him up and tell him we all miss him.  I can’t end the conversation with a “We’ll see you soon!”  I can’t give the kids a date and number of days as to when their Daddy will be back. 

     

    But we will see him again.  I like to think that he’s helping God build our mansions.

  • I can’t imagine not being able to give my kids a return date. Their father is deployed and they live for the calendar countdown. Many prayers for you to know how to respond in such a situation.
