Dandelion Girl's lovely weekend
Here is my young weed-picking friend I mentioned in yesterday's post, standing with her lovely mum. Can you imagine the impact of such a weekend as Dandelion Girl is having? Yesterday was her 8th birthday. Today she was baptized. Tomorrow is Easter. Her best-beloved grandparents have come all the way from the UK to be with her, and her granddad even baptized and confirmed her. That's a lot of sweetness and a lot of happy memories. They're having a party next door—it's rocking right through the afternoon. I can hear the voices of squealing, running, excited children outside—the grey sky and the drizzling rain can't stop them. For DG and her tagalong troupe it's a sunshiny day.
