It doesn’t matter whether it’s lunch or dinner, the meal is almost always the same. First, there is soup. Then comes the second part of the meal, which is referred to as “segundo”. The second portion consists of rice, veggies, and some form of meat. The cook at the House of Dreams serves the children more food than I can eat in one sitting. And yes, they eat it all. But rarely do they have variety. Yesterday was an exception.
So what made this day so special? Yesterday, Bolivia celebrated the “Day of the Children”. While the school aged children celebrated this day in a special way (Read Friday’s post for details), the younger one’s celebrated with sweets. The children enjoyed chocolate doughnuts and Coca-Cola. Yum Yum!
The Dreamers are such a huge part of our lives. One day out of the year is barely enough to celebrate their lives and our love for them, but they sure do enjoy the extra day of sweets!
Take this day to show the children you love how special they are to you. I’m sure they won’t forget it.
Please pray that the Dreamers will always know that they are loved by many.
