Lydia Ruth….sweetness. She giggles. That girly giggle? Lydia has it. I love to hear her giggle. She makes a friend wherever she goes; so much like her daddy. Lydia has a tender heart….and a stubborn streak.
I think back to nine years ago….I ended up having an emergency c-section. Placental abruption, race down the hall to OR and waking up not knowing if my precious Lydia had made it. Thankful for God’s sovereignty in placing us in the hospital that morning instead of an hour away.
How did she want to celebrate turning 9? Coffee cake for breakfast. It was so good! She didn’t care about lunch and I can’t even remember what we had! Dinner was fried chicken, rice w/gravy, and green beans (one of her favorites!) . Birthday cake? Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake with ice cream, of course. Yum, yum!
Lydia enjoys quiet and alone time. It is not uncommon to look around and find that she has slipped to a quiet corner. Just to enjoy a bit of down time. I completely understand. Not necessarily wanting to be alone but desiring stillness and quiet.
Love you, Lydia!!!
