It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Winter Hosting Day 10
Crying during the Elf Party
Yes, this is on the top bunk and the only way I am taking this picture is because I am also up there comforting the child. Events are emotionally charged for host kids. Both girls lost it one time during the party. We actually think that is really, really good. On top of regular pre-teen/teen feelings, these kiddos are surrounded by a foreign world. Even the most mundane days can sometimes feel overwhelming.
To see all the good parts of the party. See our Family Fun Goal Post about the Elf Party.
