"His Mercies Are New Every Morning"
In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa
“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray becausethe need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.” ― C. S. Lewis
I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

Today was a sleep in day. Daddy and Sarah went to home depot before the other girls woke up. I enjoyed a nice cup or two on Dandilion Root Tea. So, when Erika woke up, daddy wasn't here for the morning ritual of Erika's leg tightening.
I heard her ask Anna, "Oh sister, can you tighten my legs?" Anna said, "And why would I do that?"
Erika said, "Because you love me!"
And she does! :)
And then Erika passed on the kindness by brushing out Alli's hair after she had it washed. Alli HATES strongly dislikes hair sessions. :) Erika is so tender and patient. They are in there having a great conversation and really enjoying each others company.
