The Missionary

I have spent the last few days meandering my way down to Indianapolis "preaching" along the way. Really, sometimes that is how I feel....a group of teachers...students...parents, it doesn't matter the message is the same: turn off the TV, read to your kids, tell stories, sing, cardinals out the window, bake cookies.

I travel around planting seeds of wisdom..pack my satchel and move on to the next destination.

Today I am in Indy with Ellen and Nancy Donaval. They are out and about with Nancy telling stories (she flew in from Minnesota yesterday) while I am home in Ellen's kitchen making cookies, reading, and watching the cardinals out the window.

A girl's got to practice what she preaches!!
