I was able to visit a patient in the ward today through the "Adopt a Patient" ministry. I was a little nervous at first because of the language barrier. (I can speak about enough French to say hi, how are you, what is your name, and I don't speak French!) When I met my five-year-old little girl, I learned a very important lesson: There is no language barrier that a bottle of pink nail polish can't cross! Don't you love my manicure?

I painted her nails first, and then she said, "Yovo," and pointed to my nails. "Yovo" means "white person."

"You want to paint my nails?" I asked. She grinned.

Thankfully, there is also no manicure that a bottle of nail polish remover can't fix. :)
