for precious words from sweet Abdiel, who told us about school and his family. He loves reading books about cats and mice and likes to read the story of Jesus’s birth in his mom’s Bible. I love to hear his thoughts and get his pictures. precious.
oh my goodness. spring FINALLY came to chicagoland. after what felt like an endless winter, we hit the 80s today. thank you, Jesus. I needed that.
sweet hubs and I went on a long walk tonight, which was awesome. we walked to a block we had never been to before, found some budding trees, and this awesome building that apparently used to be a hospital. best part, though, was holding hands and chatting as we walked.
tonight I am also grateful that Food For The Hungry goes out of the way to make our sweet friend Abdiel feel cared for, like by sending us a card to send him for his birthday. he is definitely not the only one being blessed.
I am also grateful for a super patient ceramics teacher who helped me find an alternative design to my pots that keep on cracking.
what do you love to do when spring finally shows up?
today I am grateful for food for the hungry and our new sweet friend, Abdiel. I love his precious words “Soy un niño muy especial.” “I am a very special boy.” such true, sweet words. I am very excited to get to know him more, and am thankful that I was introduced to this awesome organization by this great blog.
if you’ve ever considered sponsoring a child, I’d highly suggest you check into this awesome organization. their finances, exit plan which focuses on creating a community with sustainable food sources and income, and care for sponsored communities are all published, available to the public, and are held to a very high standard.
also grateful that my sweet puppy doesn’t hold grudges even when I accidentally hit him in the face with a remote… 😦
