Catch Up for Daddy

Rick has been out of town this week. Excuse me while I catch him up on some conversations that have taken place today.

I asked Garrett to pray over our lunch. "Dear Jesus, thank you for Mommy and Daddy. Thank you for all the bwessings and evwyfing. Jesus, thank you for the cross and taking the nails. But, Jesus, please get better from the nails."

Oh, sweet Jesus, You knew we needed that sweet child!

During lunch, a conversation about heaven took place:
Liam: Will we take our toys with us?
Me: No, we won't need anything in heaven. We'll be wonderfully joyful in heaven without any of our stuff.
Liam: Will we take Winston [our dog] with us?
Me: [Long pause here, as I decided what to share.] No, God will take care of Winston.
Liam: But who will feed him?
Jack: I will feed him!
Me: God will take care of him. Don't worry. Everything will be perfect in heaven.
Liam: No bad dreams or asthma in heaven?
Me: No bad dreams or asthma, baby.
Jack: No awwergies?
Me: No allergies.
All boys: Ohhhh....

Daddy, the boys ask if you're coming home every morning. Hurry home! We miss you!

Out of the mouths of babes, huh? Our daddy only leaves about once a year and we miss him terribly. Confession: we all sleep in the same bed when he's gone! :)
