My children are all gone to Indiana for the weekend. It’s empty and quiet around here.
They left Friday morning at 8:00, and none of them called home until Sunday morning around 8:00. That’s 48 hours without missing mom and dad! I’m okay with that. But it was nice to hear Malin and Avery’s voices. They didn’t have a whole lot to say. Avery told me: “I just called Santa S-A-T-A-N.” I didn’t quite get what she was talking about. When Malin got back on the phone, she wanted to tell me the same story – and she did a more thorough job of the telling.
On the wall at the church where they’re staying, there’s a sign that says, “Say no to Satan.” Avery looked at it and read out loud, “Say no to Santa.”
Made me laugh.
