It's the Little Things- Scrabble Messages

Sitting on our old piano we have a Scrabble rack along with a jar full of Scrabble letters. I change the message every few days and usually it says something seasonal (HE IS RISEN) or some sort of statement (BLESSED).

Occasionally Madison will change the message. Right before Dory and her family came to Texas in June, I saw Madison standing over at the piano digging through the jar for letters. She said "Don't look!" so I thought she was putting some sort of fabulous message like WELCOME or their last name to welcome Dory's family to our home.

But obviously I had forgotten the silliness and randomness of my adorable 13 year old.

This was the message:

Madison is visiting her dad this week and I miss her like crazy. Each time I pass by that Scrabble rack, I smile thinking of how much I love that silly girl and how blessed I am to have her for a daughter. A little thing that reminds me of a HUGE blessing.
