After writing about joy, ’tis appropriate this Wednesday to share a joy-filled photo. After these enterprising children in Uganda demonstrated a range of games they enjoyed playing (jump rope with weeds woven together, ‘jacks’ with rocks & nuts + other creative play activities using simple materials in their surroundings), they moved on to the really fun stuff: dancing.

Twas a blessing to hang out with them & witness their joy….
