Looking Back

On this day, the eve of Mia's second birthday, I am reminded of what a
wonderful year it has been.

She is connected to me in a way that I can't explain, but that I can feel.

And it's strong. So strong.

Aside from the flooding thoughts of how much she's grown....

my heart is heavy as I think back to her birthday party last year. If you didn't get a chance to read about it here it is, A Party with a Purpose.

About a month after our family put on the Fun Fair, this faith-based shelter closed down.
And these families had nowhere to go.

Many times throughout the year, I have thought about these smiles

and have wondered where they are

and if they're safe

I pray that their families are back on their feet and have a stable home for themselves.
I'll never forget that day Mia. I hope that when you look back you know
that you're life started in service to others.

We made a difference that day.

Happy Birthday Eve Mia Narciso!
