All in Mission Life

Sacrificial Giving

The little Toyota pickup bounced over the ruts until the cacti on each side of the path closed in, allowing it to pass no further, as if they resented this intrusion of the white people. From there we continued the trek on foot.

Those lovely pictures of the first strawberries of the season, packs of petunias and marigolds ready for planting, and mud squishing between little toes are what started it. A longing for Somewhere Where I Wasn’t.

Flying With Children

Traveling with children takes forethought and attention to detail, but it can be navigated without a loss of sanity. No promises for your dignity though!
