The last few months have really zipped by. We’ve been settling into our new routine and learning what works and what doesn’t. The kids continue to amaze me with their resiliance and positive attitudes. They’re crying alot less and I truly believe we’re all healing; since God is supplying the grace we need to move forward. Enter Life 2.0. In so many ways, we’re starting completely over again.
Last night, Brooklyn sensed I was sad so while I was giving the twins their bath, she put together a surprise for me. After drying the kids off and doing the bedtime routines she led me into the dining room (with eyes closed and everything). There on the table stood a plate with Swiss Cake Rolls, hot chocolate with marshmallows, candy canes, and a couple Hershey’s kisses. Next to neatly folded napkin and spoon was a little letter scratched out on Post-It-Notes telling me how much she loves me and what a good Dad I am. More importantly, there was her special little picture of Lindy she keeps on her nightstand. She knew I needed that time to stop. We cried together. It was a poignant moment I’ll never forget.
Thank you to all who donated money in Lindy’s honor to the kid’s education fund. I was able to invest $18,000 into their 529 college savings account. This will bless the kids down the road in such a meaningful way. Lindy would’ve liked that a whole bunch.
