Day 118 - An Honored Guest
I had all day to prepare for the arrival of my elder daughter, Elizabeth. She is such a joy to spend time with. I have written about her before - how proud I am of her, and how breathtakingly beautiful she is. Even after a 12-hour drive, she is striking. I am so lucky.
It interests me to think about how the whole day was brighter just by knowing she was on her way - receiving the text messages and phone calls during gas stops just made it better. People I love can make such a difference in my outlook on life, and they don’t have to do anything but be in touch.
Is it really that simple? I am certainly grateful for the effect she has on my world. I’m looking forward to the week.
