We were given a replacement fish at the market. The stray cats at the first one that was swimming happily in his little bucket on the rooftop. Thank you kind lady who keeps giving us free catfish to terrorize.
There are people everywhere. Doing all kinds of things. The immensity and importance of all this humanity is overwhelming at times. I hear echoes of Hudson Taylor's feeling of the blood of millions on his hands. Sometimes the streets, while interesting and lovely in their own way, are also too much to bear.
Every few days, I ride the bus with Sadie and Quinn to go teach. It's a bittersweet time. Usually carsickness and rowdy kids are the bulk of the experience. Today I looked over and Sadie was reaching back to hold hands with her little friend as they talked back and forth in Chinese, or sometimes remained silent. I had to remember how thankful I am for this experience for her, and for all of us.
