Camas

Yesterday, the group that built the house had an awesome day.  The children in the family for whom the house was being built played all day and didn't pay too much attention to what was going on.  At the end of the day, when the house was complete, the children walked inside.  One little girl is three years old.  She looked around at her new house and with tears in her eyes said, "Camas.  Camas."  Camas means beds.  This child had never had a bed.  She went and sat down on a bed.  And sat there.  And sat there.  She was so happy to have a bed.  After living in a house with 19 people, I bet the little girl slept really well last night.  In her own cama.
