My eldest daughter has recently returned from a year in Mozambique. There’s nothing like a glimpse of other people’s lives to make us all that bit more compassionate.
Best wishes

We need to see more photos like this in the world. If people could only forget themselves in compassionate service, they would forget their own problems.

Great photo. For some reason I wasn’t able to leave my link. But mine is up. Your sidebar is covering up the links and the button to add my link. You might want to look into that and see if it is doing the same thing for other readers.

I have been quite nostalgic this week, so I pulled my entry for the week from hours after our Little Bit was born. Four hours old, I do believe. :)
