Birthday Cards

I’ve been in Belize for almost 4 weeks now. I fly back to the states the day after tomorrow.

Shortly after I arrived we went to the post office to check on the mail. I was surprised that there were 3 envelopes specifically addressed to me. They contained birthday cards!

It was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. It was fun to read the cards and to see the many signatures written in them.  Some of the signatures were of people I know personally and it gave me a chance to remember them and reflect on our friendship. Some of the signatures were of people who I do not know personally. Those caused me to think about the many people who support me and the work here in Belize even if they do not know me personally. Wow.

So this is a little shout out to Portland Friends USFW, Portland, Indiana; Durham Friends Meeting, Durham, Maine; and Rural USFW, Union City, Indiana.  You have made my life a little brighter. Thanks and God bless you all!
