"How much grace do you need to boil water? Well…. a lot. It’s a journey that starts with an empty castor oil jug, a long walk, a mud stove, and ends in a cup of tea and cookies. It’s more than a hike for hot water and cookies, it’s about a beautiful and loving life." ~JoyTheBaker #CompassionBloggers Oil Jugs, Favorite Post, Boiled Water, Castor Oil, Suppers Emergency, Cup Of Tea, Mud Stoves, Emergency Bubbles, Joy Wilson

The One Thing I'd Tell My Mom by Joy Wilson "I sat in the home of a mother and daughter much like us. Well, like you and me except their circumstances are different. Hajarah and her mother Sumaya live in a 5×7′ shack in one of Uganda’s most dangerous areas, the Katwe Slum. Hajarah is gentle, articulate, curious, and funny. The truth is, they struggle. I don’t even know how to talk about the horrors their relationship has had to endure."
“It’s often the people who have the least that are the most willing to give the most.” ~joythebaker
