My toddler nearly fainted when Snegurochka, the Russian Santa helper-equivalent (meaning Snow Girl) walked thru the door with a bag of presents. My girl loves gifts.
A girl after my own heart.
I loved seeing my sweet friend Katerina, dressed as a Snow Girl.
I’ve learned that our friends use our American word ‘interesting’ often in describing our ways, our food, our American lives.
My hubby must be listening to the Russian language CD’s I got him for his birthday.
Because I overheard him say in Russian that the Christmas play (which turned out to be about animals, including a rapping hedgehog and The Ten Commandments) was very interesting.
But his sounded more like this:интересный
That got him several slaps on the back and hearty Russian laughter!
My friends don’t have many earthly possessions, but they have a beautiful life. Their sweet spirits, gentle natures, and yearning for friendship have all contributed to our own family’s desire for a balanced life.
They don’t care about society’s rules or fads. They simply live for God. And that inspires me.
HI! I'm Kristen. I'm here to encourage you as a wife and mom and remind you there's a little bit of THAT family in all of us. I write books, run Mercy House and try to remember I am third (God first, others second). I'm glad you're here.
