Day 2

Have I seen the hand of God reaching out to touch us or our children or our family today?

Today I was missing family and friends terribly and kept having the feeling that I just don't belong here. This just isn't home. Then I received the very advice I needed from the Grandaddy I never met: 

 I know it's just a tiny little thing, but it really meant a lot to me. It's crazy how our Heavenly Father knows and cares about every tiny, insignificant problem we have!

As I was putting away Christmas decorations, I also found a giant box of letters, notes, cards that made me realize how many incredible people are/have been part of my life and how much each one has loved and taught me. Plus about 70% of them made me laugh out loud. 

Just a few of many highlights:

Sleepovers with my niece. We really dodged a bullet there..

And apparently she caught on to my love for ambiguous signatures and Pat Benatar

ISAAC! Not pictured: The Hogwarts letter Bethany left at my doorstep sprinkled with feathers

I love her so! (And apparently going with older men makes me the pedophile?!)

And lots and lots of these. Please tell me kids still write notes (and leave them for their friends in the empty tampon machine)!

Hahaha I wanna see the hogwarts letter, sounds magical! And I wanna see what my math teacher said... Didn't Jaclyn steal that note out of the tampon machine or something?
