I laid awake thinking of you the other night, my dear little girl. You are literally half a world away. As I was trying to sleep I imagined that you were playing with your sisters and brother. Or perhaps you were selling in the market so your family could eat.
As I laid there I went over in my head what I’d do if I were with you. I’d hug you and kiss you and tell you just how much I love you. I’d tell you that Jesus loves you so much more than I ever could. I’d play dolls with you. I’d tell you that I love your sisters and your brother and your mom and dad – मां and पिता. That I love your people.
I’d tell you to dream big dreams and not give up hope. I’d tell you to love. I’d tell you I think of you and pray for you every day. I would tell you just how beautiful and how precious you are.
I love you so much my precious little girl, and though you are a half a world away my love spans that distance many times over.
