Just a quick note. Many of us received Christmas cards and correspondence from elementary school kids. Some of these children had no problem asking whatever was on their minds. They wrote, we wrote, and they wrote back. It has been a joy to have that communications with these kids. They have made us laugh and made us cry and their child like insight has often times given us a reason to pause and remember what is important in life. Well, Bryan received a letter today from a very astute seven year old girl who sent Bryan the following letter. It may be hard to read but it says the following.
"Dear Captain McFarland, Hi this is laura again and I am wondering if you can tell me a little bit more about your life and your family? I also caught a spelling error..." (on your last letter) "You spelled sweat instead of sweet when you were talking about your daughter."
Out of the mouth of Babes the truth is revealed.
Few things can assault your ego more than a seven year old correcting your spelling. Bryan is now in remedial spelling and english classes. He will not have the opportunity to be on 'Are you smarter than a 5th grader' as he hasn't even got past a second grader yet. He has to have all of him medical dictations reviewed by a seven year old before we can approve them for record submission. Bless this young lady and I hope her future husband realizes what he is getting into as she is unlikely to take any flack from anyone. :0)

Listen, I pray that you are all well and that the fills you with His Spirit. God Bless you.
