In all the craziness of life lately, I neglected to thank my two friends in The Netherlands for the packages they sent just before our trip.
From my dear Jack, I received a fabulous and delightful book about the Dutch. I read it cover-to-cover, Jack and loved it. Thank you so much for sending it! I learned some things that I thought were true, but really aren't. And I learned somethings I'd never have guessed. It was a fun read and now has an honored place on our bookshelves next to our other great works of the masters. Thank you, friend.
From my dear Rene, I received a brief letter and a stack of US bills. I guess he'd been holding on to them for sometime and kept thinking he should just go get them exchanged for Euro, but then realized that he could send them to me as is and I could use them to buy food for our babies in Haiti. I did take the money to them on our last trip, Rene, and it will be used to meet the orphanage's needs.
Thank you both for your continued support and friendship!
