Dear God,
Caroline has a new favorite thing in our house - it's a wall that has framed wedding pictures of all of the couples in our family. We're there, her aunt and uncle, her grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents, and even one of great-great-great grandparents! There's one couple in particular, my grandma's parents, who Caroline is especially fascinated with. She's regularly shouting "Bea and Charles" and running us over there to take a look. Thank you God for her interest in our family. Thank you for the reminder that serves to me of the generations who came before us and made us the people we are today. Today my prayer is that Caroline always maintains perspective of the importance of those who came before in, who paved the path that she's on. For those who have worked so long and hard and committed to their families so deeply. For those who have made sacrifices to keep food on the table and a roof over our families heads. God thank you for our parents, our grandparents, and their parents and grandparents. Thank you for families.
