Touching Story

Last Saturday we had Reader's Services as home and I read from The Great Synaxaristes of the Orthodox Church, September Volume and my daughter got excited about wanting to go to Jerusalem on the feast day next year and possibly get a piece of the True Cross.

Later she thought about it and said if we could go and only get one piece, while it would be great to have a piece, she would give it to her friend with seizures, Helen (who you can read about here), since she really needs it and we do not. It is moments like this that really makes you realize the blessing of the selflessness of children.
