Yes, there are a lot of tears shed on a Compassion Blogging trip but, as sick as it may sound to those who haven’t been there, we do laugh a lot too.
There’s tremendous joy in being with children. Extraordinary freedom to be a goof when no one knows your name or face or will ever see you again. Deep gratitude for every breath, meal and CocaCola product. And friendships often forged in a fast few days.
And there are also bunnies.
And wook at the widdle kitten.
And time to space out and think about bunnies and kittens.
And there are gunslingers.
And, yes, well, there are vultures.
But there are also chunky baby legs wearing frilly socks and new shoes.
And kids who tickle armpits…
And smell their fingers afterward.
And make their friends smell them too.
