This morning as I was doing Selah's hair, she told me that in Ethiopia she had some sort of infection or parasite on her scalp. She described her mother grinding up green leaves and putting them all over her head. And then she told me about how her mother would cry because they couldn't afford the doctor.....or school.....or food.
Next, she asked if we could send her mother some money.
How do you explain that you signed documents promising to not do that very thing? What do you say when it's so unfair that we have everything and she has nothing? How do we teach generosity, when we can't share with one of the most important women in our family's life?
Suddenly, buying edible Easter grass doesn't seem so important today.
