Kella, my seven-year-old, draws special cards for me all the time. I got three like this one just this week…

She’s always telling me how much she loves me. So I decided I wanted to draw one for her today…

I put it on the couch and waited until she discovered it. It was an hour or so after she got home from school. I had forgotten about it when I looked over and saw a big smirk on her face. She laughed and said, “How can you draw so good?” Love her!

Her and Zion were on my lap for an hour before her bedtime tonight. They were both just playing electronic games, but I was feeling the love. I’m so thankful that I get to be a Daddy. And with five beautiful and loving children, I’m very blessed.
