Ok, I think we left our last post with something about struggles. But struggles are not all we experience. We all have struggles, no doubt. But man, there are many things to look around and and be so very thankful for. Like looking at rays of light and tracing them to their sources, we are thankful for our Maker who made an incredibly beautiful world.

We treasure your presence in spirit with us. (And if you didn’t receive a letter of thanks from us recently, good chance it was in a bag of our colleague which got ransacked by airport authorities–to their shame, because we only included beautiful drawings done by our young friends here. i think they made off with a whopping $10, which was to be for postage).
