Are you ready for a cheerful post on this blog? I am! Little Miss has been such a bright spot in our lives, especially the past few weeks when we needed someone cheerful and funny around. She loves pretty things—pretty dresses, pretty flowers, and pretty broken pieces of crockery! She also loves transferring things from one thing to another. This afternoon, she came inside with this handful of old broken plates, bowls, and saucers. She gave them to me one by one, then took them back one by one, then gave them to me again…. For once, I had the camera handy to capture the moment. After I had to get busy with something else, she spent 15-20 minutes transferring her pretty pieces from one little gumboot to another, and back again! Right now, she’s standing on me, singing about her big brother who just drove the van up to the house after moving the camper. She is so much fun!

Sister Emma, I know your grief is still raw, but I was thrilled to see your Pretty posting! God bless you as your put a degree of normalcy back into your lives. You are still in our prayers. My sister and I will be coming to New Zealand for the McLay reunion in a year or so and I would love to see you and the family again.
