it was past bedtime,
the kids had been in their beds for awhile,
and she walked in.
"mom, church, they say bring money for kids.. cups, plate, school books of their own. kids, have none mom."
"are you talking about bringing money for the kids in Liberia?"
"yes mom. they have none. i have dollars mom. i have 3 dollars. i bring it?"
"well honey, that is really nice, and you can bring some of your money next sunday, but you don't have to bring all your money."
"well, you can keep some of your money, they aren't asking you to bring it all.. (and now realizing how terrible i sound) but if you want to bring all 3 dollars, of course you can, but it is your choice. the kids will get books if you bring just one."
"um... ok.... i bring all 3. thanks mom."
and off to bed she went.
i learn so much from her, every single day.
anyone who ever said she was the lucky one has no idea.
