I don't know what makes some days harder than others. But there are those days that my heart refuses to be stilled and just aches all day. I wonder what the girls are doing. What did they eat today? Are they warm? Have they been held or talked to? Have they smiled or laughed today? Were they excited about anything?
But mostly, I just sit and wonder how long before I never have to wonder about these things again. Because they will be home... being loved, fed, played with, and held. Someday their world will be radically different than it is right now. At first they will not see the blessing they ahve been given, because they will greatly miss the only "home" they have ever known. But soon the love of a family will help heal their hurts, and life will be better than ever before.
Missing them a lot today. Wishing I could show them the beautiful snowfall!
