You have been good to me. You let me sleep in, relax, and laugh. You have intermittently shared with me sunshine and rain-- all in good timing. You allowed us to get the dogs groomed! :) What a joy!
It is undeniable, I am hooked on you like I am on caffeine. A week long without any sign of a connection is too much. At the same time, I love you for giving me an excuse to run away to Starbucks.
Dear Shiny Starbucks Gold Card,
Well, it goes without saying, you are my best friend. Not necessarily the good kind, though. You fuel my addictions and mask the truth with your beauty and wonderful rewards.
I am so, so, so excited to see you. I am a week closer to you, and it still seems so far away. Do you see how ready I am to be bathing in the Southern Californian sun? It has been decided: you will take me to Spirit West Coast, to Disneyland, and to the beach. Yes? Yes!
I cannot wait to bask in your midst and enjoy and experience your love and fellowship and grace... It is much needed at this point, and so long overdue. I love you so, so much. I have so much to share with you, and I know there is so much to catch up on. You are definitely my most favorite young adult group. Well, you're more than that. So much more.
Dear Uncle Jun and Auntie Rachel,
You guys are amazing. I cannot wait 'til Nash and I get married and you officially become my parents. Ha! Thank you for always supporting me and encouraging me to be my very best, for rebuking me when I need it, and for constantly showing me grace no matter what. I cannot wait to grow up and be like you.
Dear Baby Broder,
I miss you. I'm proud of you for starting up your Dialysis Tech Program with much excitement. I know you will accomplish great things. I am so encouraged by you everyday, the way you lift us all up and spur us on to start our days in prayer. Oh yeah, I am sharing your Vlog to my wonderful readers. ;) Just kidding!
Dear Baby Sister,
I dream of you always. I miss your big blue eyes, your golden hair. I cannot wait to hug you. When I go to bed at night, I imagine sleeping with you.
As always, you are overwhelmed. What's new? So don't fret. The Lord holds you in His hands. These troubles are but thoughts in the mind of the great one, a great, extraordinary plan. So lay them at His feet, and let Him carry you along this journey. The fears will be wiped clean, and the dreams will be made true. Hold firm to His promises and rest in His peace. Never let go of His grace.
