We had a difficult few moments today. After church, we met my mom at my favorite Japanese place. Emma fell asleep in the car and was sleeping pretty good while we waited for a table. She started waking up and was a little groggy still when the waitress started speaking Chinese to her. I don't know if it was that she was just waking up or if it was hearing Chinese, but she was beside herself. There was no comforting her...she didn't want me to hold her...she didn't want me to put her down...she didn't want food or drink...
my heart was breaking for my sweet girl. I didn't know how to help her. I decided that we just needed to leave...we left my poor momma there eating alone.
As we walked to the car I just whispered to her over and over, "You are MINE!" Almost as soon as we got to the car, it was as if she breathed a sigh of relief. She started to relax and would even repeat "you are mine" It was precious!
You are mine, Emma Lan!
