It was heartbreaking.
In the waiting room (at a military hospital) this morning was a little girl, about 4 years old who was chattering and playing with a baby and the baby's mother. The baby's father walked into the waiting room and the little girl said "Who's that?"
The mother answered "That is my baby's daddy."
The little girl got up from playing and walked across the room to where her own mother and little baby sister were sitting and said "Where's my daddy?"
Her mother answered with "He's working honey."
"Where is he working mummy?"
The mother looked at her and said "You know he's overseas right now."
The little girl kind of shrugged her shoulders and walked back over to the family she'd been playing with and said
"My daddy doesn't live with us."
Does that not break your heart? I hope Judah never has to say that his daddy doesn't live with us. I think deployments are hard on everybody, but perhaps hardest on the children. Please remember to pray for the safety of our troops, and specifically that little girls daddy.
