Finally she came through and I was too happy to hold the camera still to get an in-focus picture.
But after I hugged her and wiped away my tears of joy, I was able to get a decent picture of her hugging her sister.
She had been up for a long time and said she wasn't tired because she had drank so much tea that day. We, however, had yet to eat supper, so we went to McDonald's where we peppered her with questions galore while we filled our bellies. It was only on the way home that the long trip began to take its toll. At home, she shared some more experiences with us, but her eyes became heavier and heavier and we shooed her to bed reminding her that we would be here in the morning.
It will be so nice to hug her again this morning. And David and I have decided, like all parents before us, that our kids can't go away to college, we'll miss them too much. We can just give that edict and it'll work, right? Well, at least for now, all our offspring are once more under our roof. Thanks be to God!
