Shhhh! Don't tell #thiskid but this momma is missing him extremely today...
No, hey mom, too much milk in the fridge, all the granola bars are now being eaten by his brothers and sister, double stuff oreos aren't just appearing out of nowhere after a late night trip to the grocery store and then disappearing lightening fast...along w a gallon of milk. No calm, early morning discussions, more data than I know what to do with, too many leftovers (gotta figure this one out), Monday mornings are no longer filled with business phone calls...we wait for the emails to come in and then read them with tears streaming down our faces.
He is yours, Heavenly Father. Feed my sheep. The fields are white as snow, even in the urban jungle of SW Phila. His testimony is growing, so strong, already turning into a man w too much experience for his youthful age, but growing into the old soul that he's always had.
This sacrifice of a Momma's heart is worth it. And such a small sacrifice, really. The empty tomb was the real sacrifice and because of it, my heart is full and I give my feelings up to Him who can offer the Balm of Gilead to me at this time. He knows my heart, my feelings, my desires for this kid to be safe from harm so he can do what brings him so much joy...continue to serve these people. He loves being a missionary! I can't take that away from him.
