A Dolly in Kajjansi

When visiting Olivia at her new school – All Saints Primary School – for the first time, I happened to have a dolly in my bag. I don’t usually carry the dolls around town although I often regret that choice. On the way up the stairs a small girl clung to her momma’s apron as she worked to sweep and scrub the floors of the open air staircase.

With giant eyes that tiny girl looked at me and accepted the gift. Hauling out the camera, for some reason, didn’t seem appropriate. Of course, now I wish I’d had the courage. Being the hands that deliver these lovingly made gifts is such a privilege.
