celebrating

IMG_9603
Today we had the opportunity to join in on a surprise party for a friend. She is a woman whose life just bubbles over with Jesus' love. It was awesome to be a part of the celebration of her with friends. The girls loved the waiting and the big moment she walked in to many of her friends from near and far; people's lives she has touched in so many ways.

giving all the kids little blowers may or may not have been INSANE!

We arrived late but still way earlier than needed so we had plenty of time to catch up and help as much as allowed.  The apartment was buzzing and crowded and alive.  One of my favorite parts was this dear little grandma walking around the apartment and scolding kids. And no, I could not understand a word of what she was saying but some things just translate in context. The girl's loved playing and we all were force fed fabulous food.   Abishai was also passed around and snuggled by many (and I was told he needed warmer clothes many times). I just love that. I am constantly learning from other cultures about community and family and I feel so blessed. Happy Birthday to Lynn; a Godly woman I am privileged to know.
