13 out of 31



Yep, that's right: 13 out of 31 nights is the right ratio.

The two older children spent thirteen nights out of thirty-one in our home during July. Between two family vacations and their week at a camp, they just weren't home. This was probably more of an adjustment for me than for them.

We raise them to be.
We raise them to do.
We raise them to go.

All their lives we've been training them to go.
Why is this, when my selfish heart just wants them to stay?
~ Dorie

Photographs are of the string and bracelets my daughters are helping to make. They have been given to a family who sells the bracelets to raise money for Village of Hope in Zambia. {Blog link is here; Facebook link is here.}
