When my girls were young they went to visit their father during summer break. At that time, we had never spent more than 1 or 2 nights apart and we were very unsure about it. Even though they were only going to be gone for 2 weeks and it was nearby, we struggled to be apart.
On my first visit to see them we went to see the movie “The Secret of Nimh”, a heartwarming story about a small family of mice and the challenges they face. We sat outside the theater and talked and cried about how much we missed each other and that we would need to cut the visit short.
Last week as I left to go back to work with my daughter waiting to have her baby and the other one there to look after her, it felt like that summer all over again. My heart is full of joy and gratitude to have such a beautiful and precious family!
