Special Friends

When I got out of the car and started walking toward the house, I heard a screech of “Marthaaaaa” from the other side of the house.  Around the corner came Betsy – our dear friend who worked for us.  There were hugs and tears.

She works for SITAG now and had brought these beautiful flowers to decorate my table.  The red flowers were from a plant she took from our house and nursed until it now produces these beauties.






Later I showed Betsy a video message from Emily on my iPad.  More tears.








Wednesday night, I had dinner at the home of good friends, Sarah and Ivan.  Lucky for me, they were celebrating their niece’s 16th birthday!
