Earlier this week at bedtime we were reading their choice of books.
Sophie's choice: Mommy's Best Kisses. Mia's choice: Her Bible
We were reading in Luke about the birth of Jesus. Sophie was so entrigued about Jesus' birth. She couldn't understand why he had to go to Heaven so soon. I told her why Jesus went to Heaven & then she looked up at me, with tears in her eyes, and asked if he will ever get to come back here with us.
Eventually the conversation turned into us talking about how ALL of us will have to go to Heaven one day.
She hugged me tightly while crying and said, "Mommy I will just miss you so much when you go away to Heaven. You are not going soon are you?"
This left me speechless and I felt the strangest feeling come over me.
I thought deeply about the real FACT that I will, one day, physically leave them.
I will no longer be able to touch them.
The reality of that was so scary.
But actually thinking about this, validated every single choice I make each and every day.
It is why everything I do is for my girls.
Today I did a funny photo shoot of Soph after school.
With my STELLAR Kodak Easy Share.
Don't be jealous.
Dear Sophie, you are such a special part of our family & I
thank God everyday for every second I get to spend with you.
