Little gets a pill in the middle of the night; Honey gives it to her before coming to bed and it is one of our favorite times of day. In those moments with Little she is calm and candid. It makes me smile just to think about it.
Tonight Honey got ready to go in and said to me, “You ready?”
I responded, “Should be a good one tonight with Christmas and all.” Little did I know. . .
Little said very little tonight; she was worn out from a day of family puzzles and playing with our dear Luthin friends. As Honey went to close her door (a bit disappointed, to be sure) Little softly said, “Tomorrow is the birth of Jesus.”
Not at all what we expected to hear but my heart could not be more full at the sound of those words.
