My Never Ending Love Letter To My Daughter, Laci!

Laci,  this letter is long and pretty random. I just wrote things as I thought of them. This is in no certain order. Just memories I always want you to have. I am sure by the time I hit send, I will remember something else that I should have said, and I am sure I will continue to think of things I should have said so this letter will never truly

Friday Letters!

Dear Precious Heavenly Father, 
I lift up my daughter to Your throne of grace. Father, please protect Laci in her travels. May she arrive safely at her destination in Ireland. May the IJM staff find favor with her. Please surround her with Your peace and Your amazing love. Give her a spirit of calm. For we know that You want the best for her. Blessed be the Name of our Lord, Jesus. We thank You and we praise You. In Jesus mighty name, Amen. 

    Dear Laci,
    I am so happy to be in Washington with you this weekend. It is going to be so hard to let you go on Monday.  I hope you have an amazing time in Ireland. Hurry back for Christmas break. I will meet you in Florida. I love you and I am only a phone call away. If you need anything, call me. If you don't need anything, call me. When you are lonely, call me. When you think I might be lonely, call me. I think you are getting what I am saying. CALL ME......I love you. So much. Be super safe. 

    Dear Kisha,
    I hope you, Scott and Jackson can make it to Florida this Christmas. I would love to be able to spent Christmas with both my girls. That would be awesome. I miss you and I miss our late night talks. I know you are going to bed a lot earlier because of Jackson's school hours, but I do miss you very much. Thank you for helping Laci get her new blog set up. It looks great. I love you. CALL me!!! 

    Dear Jackson,
    We miss you. Don says you never call him anymore. Hello, or me. I love hearing your sweet voice on the phone. Call when you get time. I know you are a busy boy. I hope to see you at Christmas. I love you. 

    Dear Brittany,
    I miss you, sweetheart. I don't know when I am going to be able to get back to Indiana to see you. I hope school is going well for you this year. We will talk this week. I love you. 

    Dear Don,
    Enjoy your weekend. Be safe on the bike. Please try to brush Sammy once or twice. Enjoy the gym. I will see you on Monday. I love you.

    Dear Sammy,
    I will miss you this weekend. I think you will be better staying with Don instead of running around Washington with Laci and I. Enjoy the motorcycle, but be safe. Be a sweet baby while I am gone. I will see you Monday at the airport. I love you very much .

    Dear Carrie, 
    Thank you so much for taking such awesome care of my daughter during her time in Washington. You are so much appreciated. Come to Texas and visit anytime. It was so nice meeting you. 

    Dear Kelsee
    It was so great meeting you. Have a safe trip to England. Good luck with your internship. I know you will be great our  there.  Stay safe. 

    Dear Pilot of Laci's plane,
    Please get lots of rest and stay alert flying her to Ireland. Please keep you and the plane safe. Our prayers are with you. 

    Dear Belfast,
    Please, please, please keep my daughter safe during her time with you. Let her learn all the things she needs to learn, but also to enjoy her time off and see the sights.

    She's On Her Way!


    is in Washington. 

    She is there for a week before she flies off to Ireland,

    to do her internship with IJM.

    I am heading up there to spend the last few days she will be in the states with her. 

    I already miss her so much. 

    It's just so hard to let her go off to another country where she knows no one and to be so very far away from her. 

    I feel a sadness coming on that I keep trying to push away

    . I am going to worry so much about her. 

    But I know she has to do this. And I couldn't be more proud of her. 

    Thank God for Skype.  

    She still needs your help. Please pray for her and if you can donate even a dollar, every dollar counts. Here's her story if you haven't read it. Click below her photo on the right and it will open up to where her story is.

    A Sad Day!! You are missed and loved!

    It's a sad day to have to say,

    Goodbye, my dear little friend,


    Pixie, I remember the day I found you. Laci always told me she wanted a "puppy that didn't grow up". That set me in search of you. You were to be her biggest 18th birthday surprise.  I drove many many miles, all over the

    Ellen Degeneres or Bust, and Fox News 13

    As you know, my daughter Laci Carnes

     is leaving to go to Ireland for 10 months to do her internship with IJM(International Justice Mission) to help combat a very evil crime called Human Trafficking. 

    We have been doing fundraisers to try and help raise the money since it is 100% unfunded. 

    This last idea of mine was to send Ellen Degeneres
    as many heartfelt letters about Laci from her
