Watching with tired eyes, my daughter gasps with delight at each thunder’s roll. The lightning, almost too bright to watch. It’s truly amazing tonight! Almost too close for comfort (I’m more wrapped up in this blanket than she is!)
I have a month left to cuddle with my little girl. Then she’ll be gone again to South Carolina for 4 months. I will spend the holidays without her. When she comes back she will turn 4 years old the following month. This home is so empty when she’s not here, as is my heart.
I hold onto her hugs a little tighter, I listen more intently to her sweet high pitched voice, and I make sure she knows how much I love her every minute.
Cherish your children, and most of all hold on tight to your marriages. Live and love passionately.
– Goodnight friends
