Today, I will slip my wedding ring back on as a symbol of his presence with us.
This girl of ours…she amazes me with her resilient spirit, her deep well of love for others, the wise use of her intelligence, her servant heart, and her strong work ethic. So very many character qualities of her Daddy that I see in her make me smile. She is witty and charming; strong beyond her years and she is one of the most giving souls I have ever known.
Watching her sacrificial serving of this team she loves over the past four years has been such an honor. The fact that she has done it all with Tim as her audience from heaven above shatters parts of me I didn’t even know were still intact. Senior years aren’t for weak mommas! And doing “this” two years back to back without him by my side has been a roller coaster of epic emotions.
Tonight, Macie has asked my dad to walk with us. We will be three generations of Reynolds strength and pride as we escort her to the 50 yard line.
Make no mistake; her Daddy is beaming down from glory exclaiming, “That’s my girl!” Macie, we are both so proud of the young woman you have grown into. You serve others with a selfless grace. You represent the Streller name and the name of our Savior with a fierce dignity.
I adore you and am honored to be your Mom.
