He stood looking out into the ocean, his hat slightly tilted forward. Straight ahead, the waves rushes in and out. The giggles from my kids in the distance matched the rhythm of each wave.
“I want thinking about what I wanted to post about you online today, dad.” I looked towards him to see his reaction.
“Oh yeah?” he said as he took a sip from his drink.
“I was thinking about all you do for us, Lecia and I. How much you stand in the gap for us. How much you serve us as single moms. I look forward to the day when you can retire form the role of doing so much for us. When we have men in our lives to serve us.”
He laughed. That belly laugh he always does when I say something that takes him by surprise. I wonder if he was thinking about my tire that had just gone flat on the way there, and how on a day of celebration for him, he would be called to another moment of servant love to me.
“How will it feel when you give us away to good men that will promise to take care of us?”
“That is incomprehensible. I can’t even begin to fathom what will be like.”
It’s hard to imagine… but it’s coming(By God’s grace, it’s coming VERY VERY soon 😀 )
