We are all missing my man and Miss M. The family globe is now a permanent fixture on the dining room table. It is a conversation starter as we trace a line from Australia to China and try and figure out exactly where the travellers might be. And we get distracted by comparing land masses, bordering countries, the smattering of islands such as Polynesia, Micronesia and all the Eastern European countries that we haven’t ever paid much attention to. We are sad about being a family of 5, but we are talking about the world. We are thankful that we have a man, a Dad who will come home sometime soon and that we know what family means. A family full of big and little sisters and a big brother. So many people don’t have that luxury. So today I must remind myself to be thankful for His provision, grace and knowledge that all things work for good. Even times apart.
