The musings of Paj Dawb (Hmong for "White Flower") - I serve the mentally ill/disabled by day, teach piano by night, and spent 6 years worshiping side-by-side with the Latter-Day Saint (Mormon) Hmong community in Alaska. There's nothing average to see here...

What did I do to deserve this?
My roommate took a house sitting gig that conflicted with another she had committed to already. She asked, and I agreed to take over the second part of one when the other started. Well it's been a rough week for just about everyone, and long story short, I'm here in a strange house a week early...
And I am so GRATEFUL.
There is a lovely dog here named Bandit who took me for a walk around 11pm. You see the picture... Isn't it beautiful? I needed that this week, I really did. It touched my heart and I am filled.
Thank you to a roommate who let me lend a hand. It is easier to give than receive. We all know that. So to everyone out there, make life easier on others and let them do something nice for you once in a while. I promise you, it's a good thing.
