"Come on Katie, we don't want to be late," My mom instructed me. "I'm coming!" I said. We were going to the gymnastics place for my third birthday party. I held my moms hand on the way into the party. "Hi Katie!" everybody said at once. "Hey!" I shouted back. I started laughing and playing with my friends. We slid down the slide and we jumped into a pool of balls. While we were playing, I rushed up the stairs to the slide, I slipped and busted my lip right open. It hurt a lot. Mr. Randy thought I would need stitches. So, I went to the hospital. The doctor looked at my lip. He said "It will be ok, but it will be swollen for a few days." They gave me a little stuffed puppy dog that I named Gate because it looked like a brown gate. As soon as I got back, it was time to eat my cupcakes. Since my lip was swollen, it hurt I ate them. They tasted so good! I went home after that. It was a lot of fun!!!

Once upon a time, in Minnesota, lived a mother named Joanne and her 10 year old daughter named Mary. They secretly lived in the nurse’s room at Mary school where Ms. Joanne was the nurse. They couldn’t afford to live elsewhere. Mary’s father died four years ago from complications of surgery. The hospital bills and funeral costs were taking a lot of their money. They lived very meagerly, with barely enough to eat.
One day, they found themselves out of food. Ms. Joanne then told Mary, “I will check my pocket to see if we have enough money to buy some dinner.” Joanne looked surprised when she couldn’t even find one penny. Mary was sad so she went to a corner where she had spent some time with God and prayed. “Lord, I know that you can work miracles so I want to ask for a loaf of bread and some milk, Amen.” She then went about her business knowing she could trust the Lord with her life.
About an hour later, they heard the door open and they saw a man carrying a grocery sack. He walked in and said, “Hi, my name is Jerry, and I am a substitute here, and I was praying this morning and felt I should bring this with me today.” Mary’s eyes widened and she peeked inside the bag. She exclaimed, “ I prayed for a loaf of bread and milk and here it is!!!” Jerry smiled, knowing that he was used by God that day. They all decided to thank God for providing for their needs in a beautiful way. Little did they know that day, but Joanne and Jerry would then start to date, and later marry. They were never hungry again and they moved out of the school into a quaint little home down the street.
