The last week has been intersting, filled with a celebration of Emily's sixth Gotcha Day, Anna's participating in the 30 hour Famine, my visit to Urgent Care, and the disapperance of a pug. And in between all this, knitting was done!
Six years ago, I was in China where I was blessed to receive a fiesty strong willed 22 month old little girl. A scared sad little girl with eyes that seemed to swallow me. Fast forward to today, my nearly eight year old fiesty strong willed child runs through life. Determined. Fiercely loyal. We met her "fairy god mother" and the three of us wandered through a book store, Justice, and Claires after eating delicious Chinese food for lunch. It was a wonderful time filled with memories both hard and wonderful.
Anna participated in our church's 30 hour famine program, she and her friends made over 10,000 meals at Feed Our Starving Children and maybe, just maybe, got a glimpse of how so many others in our world today feel, hungry and wondering where their next meal will come from. A good reminder for all of us.
