Missing My Silly Ellie

When we first got to Ukraine, I found one of those sticker earings inside one of the books I had brought form home. I set it on the table and it stayed there until it was time to move to a different apartment. Every time I would look at it, I would think about Ellie.

When I packed, I decided to put the little earing in the case for my glasses, knowing I would for sure look at it a few times during the day. It is silly how a tiny piece of plastic can hold so much meaning. Because every single time I see that heart shaped earing, I think about Ellie. How sweet she is, how silly she is, and oh how much I miss her. As a matter of fact, I had never missed anyone as much as I miss my girls right now.

Ellie, my first born. The little girl I always wanted and dreamed off. My artist and storyteller. Oh how I wish I could see her now, making her silly faces, dancing around the house.

Soon, soon I pray we will be home and I will get to wrap her in a big warm hug.


  1. Me too. =(

    Today I have been a bit weepy for my babies at home for the first time. Perhaps it is my additional pregnant hormones...we were singing to Ana like we often do and when we were singing "You are my sunshine, my only sunshine..." it got me started. (It's one of Alexis' favorite songs) I had to try so hard not to cry the whole walk home...

    I am with you my friend. And you have been away much longer than I. Luckily it seems that God makes the time seem less than it has actually been. That's something to be thankful for.
