What does love really mean?

Well, Christmas has come and gone and the new year is already in bloom. However, a sweet story to share is one from our newest little girl Sindy. She has not been with us very long but she has really jumped right into this and we are her family and home. She calls us momma and daddy and she loves Hunter and the boys. We were unsure if she was going to be able to go home for Christmas and really was only thinking it would be for a day at the most. However, her aunt decided to come and pick her up and they all stayed together. She traveled during the four day break back and forth to her aunt and uncles homes and her cousins. Her aunt Marta would explain to her now this is my brother......or this is my sister.....and I just love spending time with them it makes me so happy. Well, Saturday rolled around and Marta was walking Sindy back home as they do not have a car; only a bicycle. As Sindy got to the gate of our property she looked up at Marta and said; "Now I can be happy because these are my brothers and sisters". Marta began to cry. She walked the rest of the way to the house. She began to explain what had just happened. She wasn't crying tears of sadness....she was crying tears of joy because it was the first time that she had seen Sindy express what love really meant and what it meant to have a family like she always wanted. Thank you to those who give to help little girls like Sindy know what love is...not just love from a momma and daddy but the Love of JESUS as well.
