Oh, friends! I have tried to be calm–haven’t I sounded calm??–but I truly think I will burst if I have to keep this to myself any longer!!!
If you want to see a video that includes ten beautiful seconds of our beautiful girl with her beautiful granny, and you can be trusted not to publicly link the video with our family, please use the Email Us button over on the sidebar, and ask!!! I cannot post it here because the title includes the name of her town, and we’re only supposed to post pictures that were approved by the MOJ!
After watching it, you will understand…!
…why I can’t find words for exactly what this ten seconds does to my heart!
…why we are freshly overwhelmed with the kindness of the Lord, and asking why He has been pleased to pour out so many rich blessings onto us!
…why Katerina looks–oh my!–so much better than before she had a baba!
…why I have been distracted from my work and watched that ten-second snippet many dozens of times!
…why I love her baba with all of my heart and am praying that I will be allowed to meet her!
…and why we are sure that if we do meet, we will become fast friends!
Alert! Spoiler ahead!
P.S. For those who cannot see videos, or who would rather just read a description, her baba dressed her all up for the visitors, has a face that is kindness itself, and is so very, very affectionate with her, even giving her a kiss! About a minute later in the video, we hear through the background noise, “Veronika’s baba would like you to take a picture of her because she’s sitting in a chair very sweetly!”
