When I left Kaylee’s dad, I moved on December 15th. One might wonder why I moved out of my house the week before Christmas when we had a 4-year-old. Most people would try to “stay normal” until after the Christmas holidays for the sake of their children. My timing had less to do with me and more to do with the fact that he’d moved his girlfriend into our guest room on the 12th.
Last Monday, Gregg and I finished our 40-day Daniel Fast. For 40 days, we ate nothing but whole food fruits, vegetables, and some whole grains. To drink, we only had water.
We have good friends who come to our weekly small group in our home every Sunday night, and we had joked about missing chocolate and coffee more than anything.
Kaylee has a lot of friends. She’s an alpha personality, a natural leader, and breaks the traditional clique lines without fear. She often has friends over, on a one-to-one basis, but this was a rare opportunity for me to see her with a group setting outside of our church youth group.
