Sweet little girl

Norah is sweet. Purely individual and precocious, yet her kind delicate giving heart is as innocent and pure as they come. She truly wants to just give away all her money ("i have too much") she says. Keri needed $200 for a dog cage and she quietly went to her room, opened the black rubber gasket from her white bunny, and poured her money out...bringing it downstairs to Keri "to keep". sigh. sweetness.

The following day as I headed to a garage sale she hands me a plastic bubble baggie of miscellaneous coins to "buy something for Caiden". She would give away everything she had if she could , to anyone she perceives as in need.

The Lord loves a cheerful giver. And we both love Norah:)

shiny faces

We all have them today. Hot, humid weather is stagnated over NY and my babies have a wet glow to their faces. Kisses are tacky and salty. Our hair is sticking to our necks, the underside of mine very damp. Its August now, time to look forward to school, fall, cool temps and pumpkin farms. At least for me. It somehow helps my internal thermostat to know these days of wiggly, sticky babies will soon give way to rosy cheeks.
Happy August 1st!
