"I'll be right outside! I just need to check on the goats. Then I will come help you with dinner." Mama's in a wheelchair, so I help her with a lot of things. She got the wheelchair from the church this year. Before that, she was pretty much in bed all day. It's so much better now, and the missionary doctor visits when she's in the area to make sure Mama's doing okay.
Want to see my goats? They are the best! They're always happy to see me, and I like playing with them. We also get milk from them. It's my job to clean up their messes every day, and I don't mind - Mama says it fertilizes our garden. Ewww! She also says they've mad me responsible. That's good, right?
Good night! Thank you for visiting! I'm sure tomorrow's going to be another wonderful day! I will pray that it is for you too.
