That space he usually occupies so fully is empty today. There will be no 'upside downies', no 'shall we have a glass of wine', no cuddles on the sofa. DD's Daddy is missing. But thankfully the void will be temporary. There will be 'where's Daddy?' and 'Daddy come home!' for a few days. But he will be back. Others are not so lucky. Children in the world who are missing out on the love and security that we take for granted. Children who suffer neglect, abuse, abandonment. It's hard to imagine DD in that situation. I just can't go to that place in my head. My heart is too strongly bound to her. It will break if I even imagine that bond broken. But just peeking into that place makes me want to take action. To bring a little joy into the life of a child, so like DD but so unlike her too. So this week I've decorated and filled a shoebox with goodies and love for Operation Christmas Child. For one day I want to take away what's missing and pour in some joy. I urge you to do the same.
Operation Christmas Child.
