Thinking of Africa

Her pony tail hangs down her back and the urge to sweep her up and breathe her in takes over.
She is sassy, loving and a slight bit bossy. She is who I imagine I was when I was three.
She was very hungry after breakfast yesterday and I said "Channie there are kids in Africa who don't get to eat but one meal a day, so I suggest you pray for them every time you think about being hungry until we have a snack later." She said in the sweetest voice "ok I will mom" ......
"Dear Lord please let the African people be good because they don't have enough food. They are so sweet." and she went on and on and on and on till I had to end her sweet long prayer. Then she said "mama I'll feed them. "
I said "I know you would"....
Just getting her to think!

She IS so sweet! She makes me smile everytime I see her. And I know that she has a sweet heart! Even though she still will have NOTHING to do with me, I see her take care of other little people. I guess they are more "on her level"!
