Slice of Life Challenge #8 - Thank you...

I have been signed up to work the school carnival for a few weeks. The only bright light that seemed to appear was the 90 minutes that occurred from the end of the contract day to the time that I had to be at roller bowler. I jumped into my car, raced the allotted speed limit. Okay, no I didn't. I walked into my friend's home and had this in my arms for an hour. What joy!

I then went to the carnival and had my picture taken with her older sister. Her grandma had brought her to the carnival, so mom could have a night home with the newborn. Since I am in the stage of singleness, I have the opportunity to love on my friends' kids. I enjoy the lessons they teach me and I know that if I am ever to have kids, I will be a better mother because of what they let me learn! I adore these two girls (and their older brother who was not around) and adore their mother even more for letting me a part of their lives!
