After a late night, we were headed home. It was past 10:00 p.m. and clearly past Lil’ K’s bedtime. She was excitedly talking about her plans for her birthday party. (Which we haven’t yet planned or decided on yet.)
“I need to make drawings to give away to everyone who comes,” she said. “I will make one when we get home.”
“When we get home, all we need to do is go to bed. It’s very late.”
“No, Mom. I need to make a picture.”
“K… it’s bedtime. You can do it tomorrow.”
“MOM, listen to me. I need to make a picture.”
“K, remember… ‘children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.’” I quoted their “C” Bible verse from school.
“Well, Mom… the other Bible verse says, ‘All have sinned and come short of the glory of God,’” she recited her “A” Bible verse. “And right now, I’m sinning.”
Who is Champuru?Aloha, I'm Donna, known everywhere on the Internet as "Champuru." I was born and raised in Hawaii. I'm a Christian. I'm married to my best friend of 18 years, we struggled with infertility and successfully conceived via IVF (and by the grace of God!) in 2008. I resigned from my coveted "secure" government job to be a work-at-home mom to my 3-year-old daughter. Using my degree in Information Technology and the skills obtained in the marketplace, I started my own business. Now, I work from home, taking clients on a part-time basis, working in my PJ's while the little one sleeps. Life isn't always easy, but it's all good.
