Today Karly told me that she wanted to send a special message to all the people who have lost their lives for our freedom. With her own money, she bought a Garfield balloon at the dollar store, and then wrote this note: "Dear People. Thank you for taking care of our 'worle'. Love, Karly." She added lots of hearts, rolled it up, and then we attached it to the balloon string. After praying for the families who'd lost loved ones fighting for our country, we released the balloon and watched it go up and away into the clear sky, off to the heavens. Karly was smiling from ear-to-ear, and I can only imagine that God may have smiled right back.
