tonight we ate lobsters at aunt meg’s and uncle nick’s house. you loved helping me throw away the lobster shells. you really had me scared as i looked out the front window and saw you run into the road. daddy caught you just in time. that is so unlike the jude i used to know. i’m getting to know this new fellow…i wouldn’t mind seeing the old jude a little more regularly.
on the ride home you said “look, mama! i can see the stars. can we go way up there and get them?” i told you that god made the stars for us to look at. you whispered “wow!”
tonight we put your bed together at our new house. your room looks a little more like it should. you were so excited. you went to bed without a peep for the first time in a while.
i was changing lucy for bed and you heard me say “god is good!” you were in your room and you yelled “god is the lord!” it was cute.
