Numbers work for daughter’s slumber party
Sometimes, I act with my heart and not with my head. Doesn’t every parent? I can’t give my daughter the world or that trip to New York City she really wants but I can give her a big slumber party.
The guest list stood.
As the RSVPs from her third grade classmates trickled in, I was relieved that “only” six girls confirmed.

Our “recycled art treasure box,” filled with scraps of paper, stickers, colorful clothing tags and old magazines.
The next morning, after our tired but well fed guests had gone home, I sat in the silence and thought about how I had been so anxious to have these nine children in my a Nike Air Max partment. But, if I wrote down the numbers now, I didn’t see fear I saw blessings:
