blog void filler.

Just some thoughts from the day...

My daily hours with the munchkin have grown from 2 to 3 and I think the little dude is going to mutiny me. Three hours is a long time for a little dude! 

Today he came running into class munching on something. "What's that?" I asked. In perfect English he replied, "Duck tongue!" Then handed some to me. I shook my head and he looked forlorn, "You..no...like...duck tongue?" Not wanting to break his little heart I replied, "It's ok, I'm not hungry." 

Jessica teacher no like duck tongue. 

Mushu has a new favorite sleep position that cracks me up. He sleeps face down on "his" panda. He used to curl up between the panda's legs but he has long outgrown that area. Now he just face plants. Silly kitty bug.

I've been missing that African boy a lot lately and reminiscing on the whole situation now that it is a safe distance behind. I've been reading some old books on my shelf and finding bits of wisdom that help me to see the situation clearly. Missing someone you know you can't have is hard. I think I'm feeling this way just because I have too much personal time and taking pictures of my cat sleeping does not count as social activity. Ha.

Here's a little nugget that was especially nice to read today...

“I realized that the deepest spiritual lessons are not learned by His letting us have our way in the end, but by His making us wait, bearing with us in love and patience until we are able to honestly pray what He taught His disciples to pray: Thy will be done.”       -Elisabeth Elliot. 

A nice little nugget, no?

Duck tongues, kitty sleeping, and personal thoughts. That's enough for today. :) 

walk slow. xoxo.

Remember when we were in the same cabin at camp and the fire wouldn't start? And then we couldn't put it out, no matter what we did it kept starting back up.
