David, the one from Texas, got here last night and we already shared some good times around the bonfire with good treats and fond memories surrounded by tons of laughter. I can't believe how much I have missed him, and having him back for a few days just brought it into the brighter light.
Preparations for Thailand are well underway. I sent off my visa application for India yesterday, and I hope really praying that I did it right, I was a little nervous and stressed making sure I did it just the way the instruction explained.
Thanks so much to those of you have come forward with the books for my reading list, that is a huge help, and if any others have any books they can give or share from the list that would be great.
I will try and take lots of pictures this weekend and get them posted, and share all the stories of our good times and celebration of covenants and family. Love you all!
