a sweet tuck-in

On Monday I said goodbye to the girls as I tucked them into bed. I knew I'd say it again at 4 in the morning but was afraid they wouldn't remember it. When I got them all tucked in, I did some last minute packing. Deborah got up several times to ask me to go to bed so she could tuck me in. I did.

I got in bed and she came in and pulled the covers up around my neck. Then she leaned on me and prayed for my safety on the trip, that I'd fall asleep quickly so I could wake more easily, that I'd have a wonderful time getting to know Romie Boy. Then she kissed me and said goodbye again. Then she turned off the lights and went to bed.

What a sweetie!
