Oh Hannah...

Last night we were privileged to have some wonderful college students over for dinner. Our amazing friend, Remer, brought over some of his friends for a home-cooked meal. (He's one of our adopted college students)
We gathered around savoring each wonderful bite of red peppers, pineapple, and chicken with a delectable sauce my husband had kindly prepared when the conversation turned to where everyone was from. One of the guys was from Kenya. We told Hannah that was in Africa.
At that point, he asked her if she knew anyone from Africa.
Hannah's face was overcome with that twinkle that she oftentimes gets... The twinkle that tells you it's time to get out your pen, this next moment is going to change your life. She yelled out, "I SURE do. Alex... Gloria...Melmann..."
(Cue our giggles)
"Oh, and Alex the lion's mommy and daddy live there, too..."

Thank you, Hannah. I needed that.


  1. Oooooooooh how I love her!! Love her!

  2. You have created the most powerful kind of woman; one with confidence, dreams, and the voice to express them.
