Three happy things

Can we just make this (almost) Wordless Wednesday? Because these three things need little explanation.

Rachiel This girl is home. When she saw me she said, “You cut your hair!” And I said to her, “You grew your hair out!” What I love most is that when her parents told her she was getting released tonight at 6pm she grabbed her name badge with both hands and said, “I don’t want to.” And how she sang her favorite hymn to her father oh so sweetly in Spanish while curled up under his arm. And also that she said she wants to come hang out at our house because she will be so bored without anything else to do. Welcome home Hermana Asay!

May I remind you that it is November 20th in Utah? There were rows of these still blooming on 5th South in downtown SLC right next to the dried and fallen fall leaves. They were so lovely and unexpected I had to pull over and capture them.

It goes without saying…
