I woke early this morning to the sound of rain, and crept downstairs, oh so quietly, hoping not to wake my sleeping house (or more particularly, Eby and Little Man). Through the front window I could see the barn light shining on a large puddle, raindrops splashing down and filling it to the brim.
I could only think of tears; there have been many this week.
Russ and I went to a wedding yesterday and I was reminded that Kalkidan will never have the wedding she dreamed of – with lots of bright colors, dancing, and delicious food, of course. Our girl loved food – the spicier the better.
So many dreams that won’t come true. I know heaven is far better, but how we longed for those special moments that will never come.
