Received this morning:
I miss you terribly these days. I melt down into tears when Mommy tells me it's "only" two and a half weeks until I see you. That's too "y-ong." Are we going to Chuck E. Cheese's when you come see us? I really want to go there with you and Pop Pop.
Yesterday Mommy asked me to tell her what I love about you. I told her, "Because I 'y-ove' her so, so, so, so, so, so much!" That answer didn't seem to satisfy because she kept asking. And I kept giving her the same answer. Oh, but once I did say that I y-oved that you and Pop Pop almost always have a prize for me when you see me!
I asked Mommy to give me a picture of you and me, and this is what she found. Do you y-ove it? I y-ove it! I'm holding on to it for the next two and a half weeks until we can get a new one made together. =)
My Precious, Precious Alex,
Sometimes Noni has melt downs missing you, too. It breaks my heart to be so far from you... and in the times, once in October and again in December, that you in your most earnest and sincere way ask me why God would want us to be so far apart... it breaks even more. I cannot believe He does. But, I answer you that many times we cannot understand God's plan for our lives.
You are so very serious and smart and kind. You are a great protector and a lover of family. You shine the light of God's love everywhere you go... in every life you touch... especially in mine.
I do so love that sincere heart of yours... you are your mother's child... and she her mother's. Blood of my blood, heart of my heart, soul of my soul. I do not know why we have to be so far apart... but, I do know that no matter where you are or what you are doing, my love never wavers or diminishes... it only grows. And, when your mother asks you why you love me so much... and you answer that you "just y-ove her"... that is it. We do just love each other. Unconditionally. Unchangeably. Forever and ever. Period. We are very, very blessed by that... no matter how many miles separate us.
I love you to the moon and back... bigger than the sky, my sweet Alex... Share that same love with your precious brother, Roo for me... until I can swoop you both into my arms in ONLY two and a half weeks...
Bigger than the sky... Noni
PS I think this is going to be more fun than Chuck E Cheese. ;)
