Little Thought

Today I was thinking what else to pack for my trip to Australia. I then remembered that I should call Becky’s mom to ask what she needs me to bring along to give to Becky. I was imagining myself on the phone, then I envisioned Ms. Bonnie in my apartment, giving me whatever she needed to give me. Then when I visualized giving her a great big hug, I started to cry. I can’t quite grasp how hard it must be to have a child across the world. Thank goodness for Skype. But still, my heart broke a little. There’s no doubt I miss Becky, but I don’t think I can miss Becky the way Becky’s mom misses Becky.

I’m grateful for the perspective.

  1. Mr. Becky loves Kool-Aid. I just sent a pile of Kool-Aid packets to them, but then I found these awesome fizzy tablets that you drop into water and BAM! Kool-Aid!

    I miss Becky, too.

  2. thanks, may. i love the way you look at things and then write about them.
