What Did You Do Today?

A 93-year-old grandmother is heading to Kenya to volunteer at an orphanage!

What did you do today that is worthy of praise from your neighbor? Me, not much…..

Norma Irma had been giving donations to the orphanage, founded by an Italian missionary, for years. This year, donations weren’t enough.

Norma’s granddaughter, Elisa Coltro, wrote a post about her grandmother’s inspiring story on Facebook with photos sent from her mother, who is accompanying Norma on her journey.

This is my grandma Irma, a young lady of 93, who set off for Kenya tonight, Not to some tourist resort to have waited on hand and foot, but to go to a village of children, in an orphanage. I’m showing her to you because I believe that all of us should always keep a dash of recklessness in order to live and not just survive. Look at her… Who’s stopping her? I love her!

….and we love her too. It’s people like this that make this crazy world we live in turn and turn!

Norma and her daughter are planning to stay in Kenya for three weeks.

“Or perhaps my grandma will decide to stay and won’t come back,”  It’s entirely possible, knowing her big heart and her energy,

Man, this makes me feel bad about complaining about traffic and rain today!
