The halfway point of spring break has passed and we are holding it together. God is meeting our needs through friends – both other kids who come to play, and grownup friends who offer to help. Yesterday we had two friends here who added energy and fun to the day. The girls did one another’s make up, danced, sang, and baked banana bread, which was quite tasty.
This morning I took Dimples to get her locs tightened and then she and Honeybee went to visit a friend who has lots of little ones and even more energy. Thank you, Sarah!
Sweet Pea is home for a couple of days and we are catching up on stories from Africa. She brought laughter and gifts with her last night. The beautiful bowl she brought for me was carved by the self-proclaimed, “Best wood carver in Gambia.”
Ladybug and Sunshine are coming home early from their visit with their cousins. Snoqualmie Pass is predicted to have heavy snow on Friday, and the funeral for the father of Samuel’s friend is Saturday morning. We are planning another visit for the girls in April when I take Honeybee and Dimples to Seattle Children’s.
It’s a new challenge to help our young adults navigate a friend’s tremendous loss. This will be a first funeral for some of them and a life lesson in how to offer support. I hope we can do it with grace and wisdom.
