A waggie ride for Tuesday


At 11:00 am, our local time ( as American time would be early evening if I calculated correctly), we had our own little parade for Tuesday. It was just me, 3 kids and 2 dogs - and a whole toy parade as I am sure she loved toys as any child does. Getting everybody to stand still and take a photo was tough going, but we had fun. We had Pink panther pushing a cart and a teddy riding a ride-on. But we remembered Tuesday in South Africa and said a prayer for her family.

I particularly wanted The Little Miss to wair the pink cowboy hat, but the child has a mind of her own! (Guess what!) So a willing puppy M wore it - it is cowboy (for JK who has a cowboy hat on in her profile pictures) , and pink for Tuesday. We had a tough day on Saturday, but at least we paid our tribute and it made my day. And I once again hugged my children close to my heart and thanked the Lord for giving them to me and keeping them safe.

For more Tuesday parades, have a look at this button:

The Little Miss and I had a great experience yesterday when we met a great SouthAfrican idol and Nobel Peace prize winner. Can't wait to tell, but today is for Tuesday.
