This weekend I took a flying trip down to Southern Arkansas again. It was time to pick up Madison from her Dad’s in time to see my own Father for Father’s Day and to return for her to leave for church missions today.
There is something to be said for a 10 hour drive alone, and one with each of my children in the past two weeks. I love the time to think, take in all I see as I travel, and pray. When I am with the children, the car provides an intimate place for us to gather our relationship again and enjoy just being us two.
Arrival to Arkansas meant that I unexpectedly had the pleasure of time with my older brother Bruce. He amazes me with his quick humor and fast processing each time we are together. His careful caring to details in those around his life are always a reminder of how much little things matter.
We have a new baby in the house, this one my girl, Bella, and she’s simply a lovely addition to my life right now!
