Mango season....

It is Mango season, everybody loves mango's. When calvin (our gardener) comes with the fresh picked Mango's from our trees in our compound, everybody gets excited!! Everybody wants to eat mango's. Only the baby's don't get them, they don't have yet mango milk.

Catherine loves to eat them, it is a little messy, but the aunti's give her the mango in pieces.

Immaculate is doing so much better, 10 days ago she refused to eat or drink. We had to put her on IV drip and even a NG tube. We tried everything, and thanks to God, our prayers were answered. She is eating again, smiling again and playing memory again! Mango's are her favorite! Is she not a beautiful girl?
Ofcourse Gloria likes Mango's too. This is the girl from the blogs about "her legs were made for walking". She sits like a princess with her two legs in plaster, nicely decorated!!! She is also doing well, has no pain, doesn't complains and we carry her in and out and to bed and to the potty, she finds it all ok.
Aunto Florence also eats mango's!
The whole house is eating mango's! In the kitchen our three ladies are also on the mango's. Aunti Grace, Agnes and Dinah.

Even in the office we eat mango's.
The season is often very short, so when they are there, everybody wants to eat them. In the villages, people don't eat lunch, they just shake the mango tree. And when you go to the villages schools, all the children have dirty school uniforms, because of the mango stains on them.

This is indeed a blessed season for many!!!!
