A Perfect Day
Cynthia's favorite part of the Africa trip was the orphanage visit.
Whew! 2012 is flying by! I can't believe that we are already in February. I have been so busy with my classes at The Bailey Agency and The Cynthia Bailey Model Search tours that I fell behind with my blog. Apologies! Apologies! I'm back, so let's go!
Where should I start? Since (in the show) we are still in South Africa, let's start there. Africa was amazing! Even though I spent time there years ago as a model, nothing could prepare me for my return to the motherland with the girls. From the moment we arrived at Atlanta Hartsfield Airport, I had a small suspicion that this journey we were about to embark on would be like none other. Just a feeling!
Even though many things happened on our adventure, the only day that touched my soul was the day we went to visit the orphanage. As a mother myself with a 12-year old child, the day at the orphanage was by far the most fulfilling. It was truly the most genuine time that I have ever shared with the girls! Everyone's love, generosity, and compassion was overwhelming. It was the first time that I experienced firsthand how "enormous" each of these women are in their own special way. There were no Smalls that day, everyone was a Tall. I say this because the generosity that each of us displayed at the orphanage was big, elevated, soaring, towering, sky-scraping, and giant. Yes, we were giants, all of us. That day, those beautiful children gave each of us more than we could ever give them. Even buying out the whole store! You can't put a price tag on doing the right thing. It was a perfect day.
