Elena Made Me Cry

This morning Elena was asking if her birthday fell on a Saturday this year. When Kyle said yes, she said that she didn't want a birthday party with friends this year. For her birthday, she wants to spend the day with her Daddy. She said they could go for donuts in the morning, then have a picnic and go out to dinner. Kyle suggested that they go on a date that night. He wants to take her out to dinner and possibly a movie.

I cried. So sweet!

This afternoon, it was Elena's turn to run errands with me. While we were out, I was asking her about her date with Daddy. I asked where she wanted to go out to eat. Quick answer: "Luby's!" Funny!

That led to a discussion about proper dating etiquette. I told her that Daddy would be opening the door for her and she needed to stay in the car until he came around and opened her door. Big smile - this is all making her feel really special. I'm hoping for many more years when Daddy will be her Prince Charming.

What a beautiful story and thank you so much for sharing. What I hope Elena will grow to realize is that not all little girls have a daddy who treat them so special. Kyle's godliness is reflected in his relationship with his children, and they all adore him. "Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a daddy." Kyle is Special!

As his mother-in-law, I'm one of his biggest fans!
