refreshing and polite


-A tiny, periwinkle blue butterfly that fluttered in front of me as I walked outside.

-The lemony coolness of water at our theology-midterm's-over-celebratory lunch outside with friends.

-Being called "ma'am" by a six-year-old at church. She was wearing a tinsel halo, and I said, "Are you an angel?" Her reply was, "Yes ma'am." I then told her she looked very pretty and she said, "Thank you, ma'am."

Do the children and youth there call you "Miss Whitney?" or is that just an Alabama thing?

For a number of the youth at my home church I was always "misterjimfoote." all one word and said very quickly.

The children sometimes call me "Miss Whitney," but the youth don't...just "Whitney."
