When I look at my son, I see his daddy. When I see my son’s smile, it’s my brothers all over again.
When I look at my husband’s profile, I see the profile of his dad and his grandfather. When my husband smiles, it’s his grandpa’s military picture smiling back at me.
When I look at the face of my oldest, I see her daddy. I see my younger daughter wrinkle up her nose when she smiles and it’s like looking in a mirror.
And when I look in the mirror, what do I see? I know I’m looking more like my mom all the time.
But what is it that other people see when they look at me? Despite my sister’s and my differing hair, everyone can tell we’re sisters. They even tend to get confused and think I look like my mother-in-law’s daughter.
But what I really want people to see is a family resemblance that goes beyond bloodlines.
I’m praying they’ll see my Father in me…
