when the littlest wakes up one morning and asks if today is Christmas and his brothers tell him no and he cries and cries and cries and keeps asking me every day if today is Christmas and when the answer is no he says hopefully, "soon?"

because 2 months from now is a long time to wait when you're 3 and maybe when you're 83 too.

let love and faithfulness never leave you. bind them around your neck write them on the tablet of your heart
