what a day!!

9 Oct

The day started out at 2:40 am

My brother-in-law drove me to the airport.

said good-bye…wanted to cry…

i was missing my girl already.


fly to DC with lots of excitement,

fear, anticipation and joy.

yes…this was the trip i was going to

get my boy.


what would it be like?

would had be glad to see me?

would he run to my outstretched arms?

does he know that i am his “Daddy?”

I take him in my arms with tears down my face….this

is my boy. this is my boy.  you are with me now…by God’s amazing grace.


I know that Laura is dying right now.  I know that she misses up both.

We will be home soon, dear.  I cannot wait to hold you in my arms.


As I am writing you…our little son just climbed in my lap…

in his quiet sweet little voice…i could barely hear him…

he says, “I love you, Dad.”

I am so thankful for my son.


Have a blessed day.

    I’m reminded 1 John 4:19: we love because He first loved us. Blessings to you all!
