It's a small World and you are a part of it !

 A few weeks back we had the privilege of joining some families (who have adopted from Kyrgyzstan )at Disney .     One of the rids we went on was "A small world"  It was originally constructed for the 1964 worlds fair in NewYork... Knowing that , I could not help but think how much smaller the world has gotten since then .. and how much smaller will it get in the future .  As we floated through in our little boat,  we traveled the globe , if only in our minds... 
over and over sung by kids around the glob  we heard the words of the song.
it's a world of laughter, a world or tear its a world of hopes, its a world of fear

theres so much that we share
that its time we're aware
its a small world after all

Laughter and tears , hopes and fears ..I thought to myself "Boy does that sum up our lives .."  

this thought came back to me last night as I was looking at some of the recent video's and photos from the pie challenge .. 
Laughter and tears , hopes and fears around the world .. connected and pulling together , making this a small world after all ....

Listen to the Laughter here ... 

And check out the Hopes here 

Christy's  friend Ruth organized the party of all parties for the kids at one of the orphanages that Christy is connected with .  Many of Christy's friends and supporters donated toward this , and although Christy , like us is state side right now, it is still an ever shrinking world, and  though ;

There is just one moon and one golden sun 
And a smile means friendship to everyone. 
Though the mountains divide 
And the oceans are wide 
It's a small small world 


    its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small world after all
its a small, small world

The Sherman Brothers 1964
