Ten points to whomever can figure out the significance of this picture on the left!!
We took the girls to Chick-fil-A for dinner on the Friday before Halloween. Brad was busy ordering our food, Caroline was hugging my legs, and Amelia was sitting on my hip. I really wanted Amelia in this shot, so I leaned back awkwardly and took this very strange photo. For as weird as it looks, it’s HIGH in sentimental value.
Any guess on what the big deal is?
Okay, okay, I’ll tell you! Last November 1, I posted about my sobbing breakdown at Chick-fil-A because I saw the ad for a Christmas milkshake and realized all at once that Amelia might not be with us yet for Christmas. There was not a moment of the holiday season spent without an ache in my heart last year. So you see now why the picture below is so beautiful. It is of my sweet Amelia, so close to the camera because she is IN MY ARMS, with an ad for the Christmas milkshake over her shoulder. We will have our first Christmas together this year.
It’s begining to look a lot like Christmas. And both of my girls are here with me. Thank you, Lord.
