My dear little girl,

This month, we are at Nana’s house helping her recuperate from knee surgery. Daddy didn’t make it this trip and I know he’s at home missing us terribly… mainly because we’re missing him, too.


I love bringing you to visit Nana, because aside from the expected benefit of seeing your abuelita, you also get to see your “best friend”, G.


You’re a little too young still to understand how you can bond with one person so closely, but when I look at the two of you… how easily you connect every time we visit… how you can play despite the fact you each speak a different language… I can totally imagine you guys as close friends when you’re little old ladies with grandkids of your own. You are what best friends always hope to be.

I admit I find myself a little longing of what the two of you come by so easily.

It amazes me how you just love each other dearly… despite the time and distance. The excitement of seeing each other again never wanes.


I wish I could tell you friendships will always be this easy and fulfilling. Sadly, you’ll have lots of acquaintances… a handful of people to call friend… and maybe one or two people in your life you can truly count on through thick or thin… if you’re blessed. Although most of your time, you will probably live your life as if everyone you know is a true friend through thick and thin. It’s just easier to believe the best of people until otherwise different… and definitely a more pleasant way to live. You won’t be alone in this as most everyone around you lives with this “truth”, too.

Ultimately, there will always be seasons of friendships and seasons of solitude (Ephesians 3). Both are good for you and I hope you encounter them in equal measure. Learning to love yourself when it is just you and your thoughts will go a long way in helping you have a healthy outlook on life and relationships. But that’s a lot of heavy thinking for now…


In the meantime, play your heart out.

❤ Mami
