For those who remember my post Perspective From The Auto Shop I am currently back in the shop getting some things fixed on Alyssa’s car on this rainy Thursday.
Coincidently enough I received an email from our friend David in Uganda this morning. Although its not unusual for me to wake up to an email from him, today’s email was a bit heavier.
Without going into much detail I just had to reflect on everything in my life that I take for granted. Between all of the political and social messages being passed around in this country right now (none of which I’ll comment on – that would go against my policy) I think it’s important to remember to be thankful for the simple things.
I did want to follow up on the last post, however. Below are some pictures David sent me of the children in the orphanage receiving those mosquito nets.
The boy on the right with the crutch is one of the children that Alyssa and I sponsor. His name is Kanumba and he loves soccer (futbol). Due to an illness doctors had to amputate his leg.
Earlier this week Alyssa tweeted a quote that I loved:
“I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people” – Vincent van Gogh
