The Ninth Little Thing....That Has Me Struggling

Dear Carter,

The last two nights have been just plain rough.  I'm not sure exactly what has triggered it, but your brother and sister have had a LOT of tough questions for me.  Their little minds are growing, and they are trying so hard to understand exactly where you are....and what it's like in Heaven.

How do I answer these questions for them, when I haven't seen it with my own eyes?

I'm trying very hard to find something to be thankful for in this, but I've got to admit that it's a little difficult.  Having to comfort your brother and sister and watching them hurt over you doesn't make it any easier.  I will continue to try hard to find a silver lining.....maybe better understanding of what they are feeling?

Either way, I am asking that you somehow let them know that you are still with them.  That you love them so very much.  That you know how much they miss you.

And I'll continue to do my best to explain the mysteries of our faith to them.
