I ran across some older pictures of Jeseca and the boys a few days ago. I was doing some work for my mom’s new business on her computer, and as I searched for logo files I’d made for her, up these came. This must have been around the time of our 10th anniversary… Her eyes could penetrate your soul. I see Christian becoming so much like her every day (see the last picture). And he’s so proud that he has his mom’s eyes. It makes him smile every time he hears it…well, it’s more like watching the sun rise in the morning than a smile. He beams.
It was a really odd night, though. After the Chargers beat the Colts (sorry Pop) we channeled up and ran into Sleepless in Seattle. We hit it right when Tom Hanks was describing on the radio how long it had been since his wife/his son’s mom died. “About a year and a half ago…” Everen said, “Hey, that’s just like us.” We sat watching for the next few minutes, all of us wondering what was coming next. Nothing significant happened, but it was really strange timing.
2009 has begun so much differently than I thought it would. One thing I’m pleased about is the start I’ve made in a new devotional. And what I study each day I read to the boys each night, so in a way, they’re doing a daily devotional with me. It’s very sweet. And I pray we’ll stay committed to it. I know it will be so rewarding.
