Grace Notes: "Dear Joey"

I heard your step down the hall today and my heart skipped a beat. Your Dad has been in Virginia preaching all week and so I knew it wasn't him, but it was his tread, his step that I heard. Have you unconsciously imitated your father's way of walking or is it maybe that you are structured like him and so have inherited his natural gait as your own? I'm not sure, but I know that you are so like him and it gives me great joy. But bringing joy to others is a specialty of yours. This has been true of you the moment you were born (you entered the world quietly and in as dignified a manner as possible). I was only in labor with you for a little over two hours. You never have wanted to cause trouble for me!
