I had a houseguest for the last 27 hours. Her name is Amanda, and she's a young woman who survived the earthquake in Port au Prince.
my friend Jen with Amanda in Haiti last year
Amanda has been traveling back and forth between Haiti and Minnesota for surgical procedures and physical therapy for the last year or so. Her story is terrible and very sad, but she never stops smiling. I had so much fun with her practicing my Kreyol and cooking together. Honestly, I'm so tired right now that I can't put together too many words, but I wanted to share this blessing with you. Amanda reminded me that even in the face of the most horrible things life can throw at you, it's possible to smile and love one another.
Bondye beni ou. (God bless you.)
