Mom left with little boy today..apparently the food we were serving her wasn't to her liking...I have run the rollercoaster of emotions at many different times in my life (those who know me know that well!) but today I feel like the coaster maybe coming off the tracks...I don't pray usually but tonight I'll hope and pray that the little peanut is somehow still feeling my arms wrapped around him..keeping him warm and safe....


  1. Lise-I am so sorry...

    I have had my heart broken in similar ways in Haiti, but there is truly nothing that makes it "ok". The photo is sooo beautiful.

    I stumbled across this quote a few years ago, and have clung to it in times of great questioning and doubt. Don't know if it will speak to you but wanted to pass it on:

    "Be patient towards all that is unsolved in your hearts, and try to love the questions themselves. Like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue…do not now seek the answers which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to LIVE EVERYTHING! Live the questions themselves. Perhaps you will then, gradually without knowing it, live along some distant day into the answer.” -Ranier Maria Rilke

    Thinking of you & Haiti a lot...
    Give Barbie & Rosemon a hug from me! :)
