{Day 97}

I saw the sign yesterday flashing the news that the circus was coming.  Lately it feels like the circus is already here…at.my.house.  Yet seeing that sign transported me back in time to a day that my older sister took me to the circus.  Crystal clear in my mind I can still see the funny little monkeys ridding bicycles and the giant lumbering elephants with their decorated head dresses. Then there was the beautiful slender acrobat who transformed herself into a flying bird as I watched in amazement.  I was very young when I went to the show but this memory is still so real to me today.  I can’t imagine the scary acts and sights that must be even more ingrained in the minds of the orphans.  Yes my childhood was very different from theirs.  Have you ever stopped to think that it could have been you?  I have.  What if I had been born in India and had lost my parents?  Since most of us haven’t had this experience lets help these children that have.  Because if it WAS me I would want others to have compassion.  Did you know that the orphans are praying for the success of this project?  So I guess they want you to have compassion as well.  Will you?  Hmm.  Three days.  There’s just way too much to write (about everything in my life).  Yes, I’m going to keep the blog so I’ll tell you all about my personal circus later. 🙂 PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO DONATE!!!! If you want to see us reach the goal then I’ll need your help!!! Thank you!

Thank you Abigail for donating the beautiful flower and for David and Cheri for donating this amazing cuff bracelet!
