Our 11-year-old daughter Claire, who is giggling right now playing card games with her sister, wrote the following letter to me a while back. I actually just got up to see what all the fuss was about, thinking they were upset and arguing and needed my help with that, but they were booming with laughter together. It warmed my heart to walk in their bedroom and see them having so much fun.
A drawing of Claire is to the left. I am sure your children are thinking something similar about you, right now.
What I Love About You
You are so kind, so loving, and I am not worthy to have such a patient mother. When we fight, you stop whatever work you were doing and come help us. You are so hardworking and always there to help. You are raising five children and homeschooling us when you could send us to school. If it weren't for you we wouldn't have relationships with each other or you. Because you are there to guide us we are what we are. I wish I could be more help to you and not be so mean. When I get married and have children, I will use everything that you taught me. You are raising a new generation to follow the Lord. I know you work hard for our family and it's difficult on you when Daddy's working a lot. Your life is dedicated to raise and care for a family, and you do it so well.
