On a second happy note - I actually corn-rowed Tori's hair yesterday. I know it's not perfect by any one's standards, but it's the first time that I've corn-rowed well enough that I didn't immediately take it back out. I had to have her sit in a little chair next to the computer and watch You Tube corn rowing, pause it and copy it. I also had to recite the directions to myself out loud as I corn-rowed. I think it would have been easier to learn if I didn't already know how to french braid; it's kind of the opposite and my hands didn't want to relearn. Here's a shot; I expect it to improve over the next few months.
As a prayer request, the senior pastor at the church Gabriel is interning at slid his truck on black ice this morning on his way to meet with the interns. His truck appears to be totaled and he has been taken to the ER. Please pray for him, his name is Dwight and his fabulous wife writes at http://www.aplacecalledsimplicity.blogspot.com/. We also really need to pray for Gabriel's safety as he drives over 50 miles a day in the Colorado mountains covered in snow and ice!
