In our house in Nakuru we live with George and Nellie and baby Michelle. There is a house girl named Beatrice who cares for the baby, cleans, does laundry and other assorted jobs and shares a room with Amy and me I.. She is quite shy, does not speak much English and is extremely curious about us. She did allow me to give her a hand massage the other night and since then she has been a bit warmer towards me. I did not bring a blow dryer but noticed there was one in our room so I asked if I could borrow it. At first she said an emphatic “NO” but then nodded that it would be ok. She came into our room just as I was towel drying my hair and ordered me to “sit”, grabbed the blow dryer and dried my hair. Oh my, those who know me know how fussy I am about “helmet hair” but folks I went to town with that awful hair….I had bad hair but a good day. Beatrice I Love You!

Petranilla came for a visit and tea. Amma gave her a box of pins and some new scissors. She was overjoyed to receive such a simple but wonderful gift to help her in her business as a seamstress. She jumped up from her seat and gave hugs and kisses.
