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

Women's Day 2016

Happy  International Women's Day! 

This was our first year to celebrate and we were excited for a fun "holiday" in which the majority of our household was spoiled by the minority. This day was special for another reason too: our girls were comfortable enough to share their expectations for the day! It was the blending of two cultures and an example of how our life is richer through adoption! 

For breakfast Michael had muffins and strawberries. He gave each of us a bouquet of flowers remembering that Ukrainians only give odd numbers of flowers (even numbers are for funerals). At lunch he presented each of us with a homemade card and our favorite candy bar (in my case not a candy bar but a package of Starbursts). We had special ice cream for dessert. It was a good day!
