There's Something About: Children's Day

Happy Children's Day!
 
In Japan, May 5th is Children's Day - a day to celebrate the happiness of children!
 
Traditional carp-shaped flags are flown and sometimes dolls are displayed, as well.
 
My mother just returned from a visit to Okinawa and sent us this flag.
 
 
 
 
Today, I'm reminding myself how blessed I am to be trusted by God with these beautiful treasures. I love them so much and I hope and pray everyday that they are as happy as they make me!
