teaching in her Silence

I have told you before about my friends little girl  Leah.  She has Apraxia of Speech.

  So, she doesn’t speak. 

Talking to Liz

 Needless to say, when Leah comes to play at our house – the house  is quite.

One of the many things that strike me about Leah is how she loves.  

She simply just LOVES – the way a person should. 


When I heard this quote yesterday by Blessed Mother Teresa . . . I couldn’t help but think of four year Leah  – Who teaches me so much in her silence.

 “The fruit of Silence is prayer. The fruit of Prayer is faith. The fruit of Faith is love. The fruit of Love is service. The fruit of Service is peace.”

Catching UP

I am totally off my blogging grove. I haven’t posted, visited my blogging friends or up loaded photos in weeks.

 It just seems wrong to me. 

I didn’t show you the wonderful Easter Eggs Liz colored with her girl friends. 
I didn’t tell you about Leah ((the little girl next door )) buying Liz a best friend necklace and being so excited to give it to her.  
I didn’t tell you, this child is four years old and just as sweet as she can be. 
I know I have told you she cannot talk but, speaks volumes. And, Leah will be sure to steal your heart. 
I didn’t show you the fun Liz and Madelyn had a few days later.  
Madelyn is Leah’s big sister. She is a sweety too. 
Sometimes, even the best of sisters have to play with their bestie on different days and color eggs. 
That’s just the way it is. 
There is so much more to tell you. . . but first. . . I have to clean the kitchen.
