I’m still trying to grasp that my eldest daughter Faith is twelve. How can that be when I feel like she was just born a few years ago? As the oldest of five children, she is a huge help around the house and with her siblings. Right now she is in that in between stage. She’s still my little girl, but each day I see how she is maturing and growing up.
Faith has been experiencing some sadness over friendships she feels she has lost. Oh how I understand those times of loneliness when it feels like everyone around has a close friend except you.
Having five children, I want each one of them to feel loved individually, not just as part of the group. It is important to me to get away with each child to spend some time loving on each one individually, but with my husband working so many hours lately it’s been hard to find time to get away.
Why not have a Mommy/Daughter date at home? Faith loves coffee so I knew she would love the Pumpkin Spice Coffee-Mate that I purchased especially to enjoy with her.
We sipped out cups at the table over a card game and laughed and chatted like best friends, which of course we are! It was a great time to be able to talk about some of those issues that are bothering her without the other children listening in. We laughed and cried and drew closer together. I think next we’re going to have to try Peppermint!
