I have a flock of zebras. They don't play nicely with others and the horses often kick them.

My friend asked if I'd run the tech equipment during the memorial service for her husband's sister. This is a couple that are close friends and have had my back on many occasions. When you are a single mother with multiple chronic conditions life would be impossible without friends like them, and I have been blessed with quite a few. Of course I'd do it. Not a problem. But after the service this afternoon they gave me an envelope with a Visa gift card that has quite a bit of money on it. I'm kind of sad that they didn't know that they didn't have to give me this. I was happy to do it for them. And I'm sure that whatever I buy with this money will always be a sad thing for me. So after staring at it for quite a long time, I decided to give it to my Compassion International child as a present. Estefani's family will welcome the money and not associate it with anything sad. It will make me very happy that the money is going for something good. This feels like the right thing to do.
