It's 9:45. I need to call Charlynn but it's too late in Florida. (I've been trying to call for a week now. Why is a one-hour time difference so hard for me to cope with??) William and Katie are working a puzzle on the floor beside me (yes, I am well aware that they should be in bed.) I'm researching curriculum for next year while listening to K-Love via the Internet. They just played that old classic, "Friends are friends forever" by Michael W. Smith. (Lyrics here, if you need a reminder) As the song ended, William asked Katie if that song reminded her of anybody. I knew what was coming next.
He sighed and said, "I just think of Matthew all the time. I wonder what he got for Christmas. I wonder if we'll live at his house when we visit there. I wonder if he still plays with his sword. I just wonder all the time."
Those two really should not be separated, that's all I'm saying.
