in love

There was nothing we could say or do to convince Maddie to go up and sing "I'm so Glad When Daddy Comes Home" with the other primary kids. I even walked her to the front of the chapel but she wouldn't stay. I knew Jonathon was dissapointed not to see her up there but I didn't know just how much it meant to him until he shared his thoughts with me later today.

"I've been looking forward to seeing my kids sing to me on Father's Day since I was 14.", he said.

he melts my heart.

That primary singing REALLY tugs at my heart! I can hardly take it! Jon was sick yesterday so he missed it. When Paige stood to walk up there she said, "I wish Dad was here."
