Today I miss you, more than other days. I wait eagerly to meet you face to face. Maybe I miss you today because I see such beauty and I want to share it with you. I see the warm sun rise over the sparkling field of snow and I feel as if I’m stuck in a poem. Someone ought to use glittering words to describe this scene, but as I head off to work, I have little time for poetry. I wonder though, did you watch this same sun rise miles and miles away? Do you think of me on days like this?
Know that I am happy in my waiting, and I pray for you. I love you, man of my future. Someday you will come to this home with its pretty lines of garland, tiny red bells, and twinkling lights for Christmas… because someday you will be a part of this family, and I a part of yours.
