I Want To Give You More

It still boggles my mind that Ruth is nine years old.

Today, she sent me a text message while I was at work.

"I sent you an email."

About five minutes later, it was followed by another one.

"Read it."

This is what my nine year old had to say today:

The message may appear simple.  Some may only believe she's described a picture she created just for me.  I see someone who pays attention to the little things...who sees beyond walls I've built... who holds on to her past.

I wonder if she realizes how much more I wish I could give her.

She certainly deserves it.
