Scarf and Ginger from Cara Vivian

Cara texts us every time she goes to the grocery store, and is forever bringing us this or that just in the nick of time.

She also delivers our frozen meals, which has been so very helpful. And delicious. And uber healthy.

We are also excited to be kindergarten buddies as school starts!

I woke tonight, a whole day later, with my fever broken finally, and found a gift she had left: this lovely scarf and some candied ginger!

The ginger is exactly what I needed to settle my stomach, and she found some in the local health food store we didn’t even know about yet!

The scarf had a sweet and creative note, about it being teal for ovarian cancer, with green, red, and orange for energy, movement, and happiness. I loved these symbols so much! There is so much life in that, and it really is amazing.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
