Mice, Lice and Parasites - OH MY!!
...and cats the size of grown men hoping to enjoy our children for a snack before dinner. Little did we know that what awaited us were only mice, lice, cockroaches and parasites.
After warming up to the idea of living with mice and cockroaches the Lord stretched us a bit more. He blessed us with lice.
Like Dorothy, who was deathly afraid of lions before meeting one, I abhorred the thought of having lice. Our family never had lice while living in the States, but it seemed like the worst thing ever.
As they helped us find the tiny creatures they assured us that having lice is no big deal. In fact, they said, most people have at least a little bit. After our informal training session, we were qualified to work on each other. Over the next several days we spent hours (and hours) picking through each other's hair to find our unwelcomed guests and "pop" them.
