Love Thursday #15

Love is...





Joe Cool, who is just seven, found a crumpled dollar bill in his recently-found piggy bank. But he didn't ask to rush to the Dollar Store to get something for himself. He didn't ask to drive to Dairy Queen so he could have an ice cream. He could have done these things. Instead he brought the dollar to Pastormac and told him that this dollar should go toward bringing our babies home from Ethiopia. It is the most precious donation to our adoption we have recieved. If that's not love, I don't know what is.

One of the creators of Love Thursday has decided not to blog any longer and limit herself to just photo journaling. We're all still reeling. We will miss her poignant and thoughtful words so much. So Love Thursday is changing a bit, but there's still a lot of love here and here. Love goes on and on and on.

that is the sweetest, most unselfish thing a child can do! How giving of him to donate his dollar to the adoption fund!
