To preface, the American Society pulled money together to give all of the kids at Missionaries of Charity new shoes for Christmas! Having a toddler myself, I knew it was time for the kids to get new shoes again and I wanted to make sure they got them! We recently had a friend visit us from the U.S. and she was kind enough to bring flip flops in her luggage for us to give all of the kids! (Thank you, Stacy!!! We really appreciate it!) Today, I was joined by friends Donna and Mollie, and we dropped off all 29 pair of flip flops for the kids! While we were there, we had the pleasure of feeding the kids their lunch! Not too far from what I experience at home, my kid was the only kid not eating anything! After lunch, we helped get the kids cleaned up and then we put them all down for their nap!
I am filled with so much joy when I see the love and devotion given to these kids by the sisters! The kids and the sisters occupy my heart and my prayers now and forever. These beautiful, bright-eyed kids give me a new appreciation for so many things. I am so grateful for all I have been graced with and I am so grateful that I am able to do something so small for others. These kids deserve the world and the world deserves them!
