The other day my daughter asked me if she could go to another country. I said, "Sure, but it costs lots of money so you'd have to save up for a while."
Then I asked, "Where would you want to go? Would you like to travel to France since it's our last name?"
"No, I'd want to go to Haiti to help the people."
I just about started crying when she said that (I'm almost crying right now as I type this) because it totally caught me off guard and showed me how sweet and tender-hearted she was.
If you are like my daughter and myself, I'm sure you have felt helpless for the people of Haiti. Not really knowing what one person...YOU...could possibly do to help. Of course, we can pray for them. But right now, that doesn't seem like enough. Well, the other day, as I was reading my cleverly creative friend's blog, I was totally INSPIRED and heart-warmed by her and all of her "foodie" friends.
