Today is the day I would have kissed you goodbye as tears streamed down my face. Today is the day you would have climbed onto the bus. It is the day they would have taken you away in order for you to learn what is needed for the rest of your life. Today is the day you would have spent six hours away from Mommy, Daddy, your brother and sister. Today is the day we would have missed you like crazy as you went to get your, “socialization,” and form stronger bonds with others five year olds. Today is the day when the world tries to tell you to grow up. Today is the day you would have been expected to be seen and not heard. Today is the day your teacher would have known better than Mommy and Daddy. Today you wouldn’t be able to sing your prayer of thanks to God for your food. Today would have been the day where God and family would have been pushed to the back as your desires are moved to the surface.
But Sweetheart, because of this amazing God we serve that spoke to your Momma and Daddy’s heart, today you are home with us ( your biggest fans), your sister (who will always be your best friend), and your brother (who runs after you til the day is through.) Today is the day we can sit as long as we want as you eat your breakfast talking about the crazy dream you had the night before and about the goodness of God. Today you are home with us for your most productive energetic hours of your day. You have amazing ideas for fun and creativity that benefit us all and are meant to be shared. Today is the day you tell us everything in that sweet mind of yours. Today we have all the time to laugh at the joys sometimes hidden in this life. YOU bring laughter to our day. Today we will learn and grow beyond four walls as you explore like a kid should with no time restraints or bells ringing except for when I call you in for lunch. Today I am so so thankful to have YOU. To have heard the sweet whispers from God to embark on this journey that could have otherwise turned out so differently. Today I am thankful!
