A Dirty Life Saver

I was cleaning out the console cubby in my car, and found a peppermint Life Saver in the bottom of the little pen cup. It had ink from the pens on it, and looked icky. If I hadn’t eaten it, I’d show you a picture of it -just kidding! The photos did not come out right, but I tried.

I couldn’t help seeing some similarities between that Life Saver, and the life-savers that I know who work or live with damaged children. They often get a little dirty trying to make a difference. You can’t always be picture-perfect or organized when you are saving a life. (Remember my swimming pool soak?)

So to all my friends who have fostered and adopted, or who work with kids like Lilly, Thank you for being a Life-Saver!
