Today we have been in Haiti for 3 months. Some days it is if the days fly by and others it seems if they stand still. So much has been gained and so much lost. My side of the world is such a different one than the one I can from. Things seen to go at there own pace here in no hurry for anyone. Once we do come home there are so many things I will miss. It will be a readjustment for all of us. I love the chocolate kisses I get everyday. This bonding time with Daphnica has been worth it all. Tonight as we prayed bedtime prayers Daphnica said thank you for the rain, that I am here with my Papa and Manman, thank you for paperwork to be fixed so I can go to Kentucky with them. In Jesus name amen. I know God had to here that prayer.
See you all soon. I know God does all things well. Love Holly

Haiti News

Last night there was a very bad accident in one of Port-AU-Princes busiest intersections(Delmas 33). A dump truck hauling sand lost its brakes and plowed downhill thru traffic, pedestrians, and street vendors.
We were in a little shop today here in Haiti & the news was on & it said that it was 22 confirmed dead & 56 (I believe) injured. All of them thought they had a lifetime, but were they ready to die & where are they now, heaven or hell? I have been praying & thinking about it all day, would I be proud of how I have lived if I had been one of the 22 & am I 100% certain where I would be now.

For the love of popcorn

Our little one has found a love for popcorn. Everytime the cabinet is opened she takes a count of how much we have left. Last night we were going to give it to them for a snack. But the city power went off. I told her we would have to wait till the next day. She says don't you have any shakea shakea kind. I told her no that Michelle had brought that. She informed me that we needed that kind for when we have no city power. This morning when I got up she let me know that we had city power I said that is good. She says can you pop the popcorn now this way we can have for snack for later. She knows that city power goes off everyday before snack time. So I popped and let them have it after breakfast. We tell her all the time in America there is so much popcorn you can swim in it. She ask if on her next birthday can she have a whole tub of it.
