This sweet girl made me cry. Her words choked me up - my first real tear-filled emotions regarding Jordan's departure.
Eva: When is Jordan leaving?
Me: Tuesday morning, hun. Tuesday morning.
Eva: And she's not coming back?
Me: Not to live with us. Just for visits like your grandmother.
Eva, with a tremendous look of sadness: I don't want her to leave.
Me: Me either.
Eva: It's too bad we have to grow up so fast.
It was at those lasts words that I somewhat lost it in front of my family.
Welcome to my family blog. I have been married to Mike for over half of my life. I love my Savior, Jesus. I am a stay-at-home, homeschooling mom to six terrific, interesting children. My 3 oldest were born to me in my younger years, while my 3 youngest were given to me by God in my older years. I am very blessed. ~Cheri
