Once again, it has been too long since my last post. Liesel had her last day of school today . It was an awards ceremony and now she is free for the summer!!! (post to follow on that later) So I have been just trying to get her through that. The last few weeks have been exciting.
Liesel went to a Father/Daughter dance we had at our church. Liesel wanted to go pick out a new dress so we went to get her one and the one requirement she had was that it had to "twirl!!!" Every dress she tried on in that dressing room, she tested the "Twirl Factor!!!" One awesome memory that I enjoyed that night was how excited Liesel was to dress up for her Daddy. She wanted to surprise him and not let him see her until it was time to go. I absolutely love my Daddy and know how important a father/daughter relationship is to a little girl. In the book Captivating by John and Stasi Elderedge, it explains how little girls want to know they are lovely. They want their father's attention and love. Watching Liesel prepare, in a sense, to see her prince for the dance touched my heart that night. She waited downstairs for him to come down and told me to tell her when he was there as she was hiding in the guest room. She walked out as soon as he came down stairs and there was a twinkle in her eye. "Daddy, am I lovely????" She did not really say that, but I could see it in her eyes. I was very blessed to have a Daddy who made me feel lovely and now I get to sit on the other end and watch my husband show that special kind of love to his daughter. He told her she was beautiful. She twirled for him and I held back tears as I took many pictures.
Liesel is now officially done with school so I am sure I will have posts more often to come of the fun we will be TRYING to have this summer!!! Please pray for me.....survival with all three kids at one time all summer!!! OH MY!!!
