a date over a year in the making
here. This last and final date was at a "fancy" dinner at the place of her choosing and meant she had both Jason & I to herself for the night. The night started with Evy picking up a dress to wear & asking me at least 30 times when Papa was getting home from work. The doorbell rang & Evy opened the door to Jason with a little bouquet of flowers for her and our date night began.
We asked each other questions pulled from a sparkly little glitter box like....
For Papa & Mama: How did you fall in love? How did you know you would get married? How did you find out you were going to have me?
For Mama: What was your favorite memory of these times together on our s?
What is your prayer (or one of your prayers) for me as a young girl?
For all 3 of us:
The thing I most struggle to believe about what God says about me is __________________________________
When you do you most feel loved by me? by God?
Taking the time to ask and listen to her was such a blessing. I seriously cannot believe how she has grown since the first one of our Mama- Daughter dates...
I share because I truly believe these date with other Mamas & their daughters is one of the BEST things we have done with our girls (2 down & 1 to go...& Rayne is EAGERLY awaiting her turn next year). Grab some of your people and be intentional about lavishing love & encouragement on your daughter because being a woman in this world is hard & we all need support and life giving community that points to the truth of who God says we are.
