And The Goodbyes Begin

Today was "pajama day" at Meron's school. So all the kids were rocking their jammies in class.

It also happened to be Meron's last day of school there before we move... so the goodbyes have started!

Meron absolutely loves everyone in her class. She has never said an ill word about any of them.

And I know just how hard today was on her... as her friends surrounded her with love and hugs and happiness.

We took a stamped and addressed envelope to every classmate so they can all write letters to Meron. We're gonna do everything we can to help her stay in touch with these great friends she has made this year.

Tonight - I crawled in her bed to pray with her and I just thanked God for her strength and for her being so willing to go follow Him with her family with no hesitation. I really am so proud of her.

Then she asked to pray and from her big ole heart she said:

"God... thank you for all of my friends. I love them so much and I miss them already. And God thank you that once you have a friend you will always have a friend and I know that i will always have my friends in my heart - and we can never leave each other from there. In Jesus' name... Amen
I couldn't stop hugging her. She's my six year old but she gives me strength, confidence and faith I need.

God... I am seriously SO PROUD of this little girl today - for standing strong in the face of tough things. Lord... if it's your will... please continue to bless her with these incredibly strong gifts of faith and strength that she shares daily with her family. I love you Meron!
