Who but Grandma? Grandma's give the best gifts? Show unconditional love? Persevere with unending patience? Read "one more book." etc. Having just returned from the states, we cherished the time that the boys got to spend with Grandmas. During our pre-field training, "long distance grandma's" was a topic of discussion and the title of a recommended book. This has clearly been one of our biggest struggles since leaving the states and we have to continually remind ourselves to give this struggle to the Lord. But, Drew and Truitt's grandmas are the best and due to their commitment to being great, long distance Grandmas, they never feel far from our hearts. As you can see from the pictures, these are things that could only come from Grandmas. The best toys, matching shirts, and gifts of love. Last year, Grandma Kaeb recorded some books on tape for the boys. This year, Grandma Plattner did the same as you can see from the video. As we feel the sacrifice of such vital face to face relationships, we commit these relationships to Him and trust Him to fill the gaps.
