This summer has been funky.
There have been some very high highs.
Like vacation with my family.
Like a super sweet work schedule.
Like care free days galore.
And some very low lows.
Like saying goodbye to Juan.
Like saying goodbye to Shoshi.
Like saying hello to Naji.
Since Naji has come here are a few things that have happened:
*In no particular order*
A window was broken.
Imagine glass shattering everywhere in the carpet…
Sleeping pills were swallowed
Imagine calling Tylenol Helpline frantically and trying to find out if an emergency room visit is in order
Silly String has been stolen.
Imagine wondering where 2 cans of Silly String were even stashed in order to get out of the store undetected.
Silly String has been spread out around the neighborhood.
Imagine the mess.
2 dozen eggs have been broken in the middle of the street.
(He wanted to see if they would fry.)
The backyard grass has been set on fire.
The cat was almost drowned in the bathtub.
26 freeze pops have been consumed in 1 night while hiding under the covers resulting in a sugar high that helped a small child stay awake until 3:38 am.
(Yes. It was as lovely as it sounds)
Blood has been on the carpet in the living room, on the stairs, in the bedrooms and in the car because-
Noses have been punched.
(Evidence visible on Kaishon’s shirt.)
Sunday School kids have been mooned.
Imagine what would possess a person to do such a thing….
I have no earthly idea why I am in such a funk this summer….
I think it is crazy to have Naji here.
I think I am going crazy.
I know I am going crazy.
I know within the very deepest part of my heart,
Naji is a blessing.
A breaking glass, punching noses, bleeding, sleeping, ice pop sucking blessing.
And we are glad he is a part of our lives.
Look at this site.
I just read about it.
And I wept.
Wept at 2:29 am.
We can all make a difference.
at Communal Global?
We would just love it!
