the end of february.

Joel's mother and little sister came from Seattle to see him for a short week, and stayed with us (to our enjoyment). There was a great deal of coffee and tea brewed, and home time as well as their adventuring into the Dubai malls and other sights. I loved seeing them together (and felt very spoiled getting to see Joel so much), but their having to leave him again was heartwrenching. They're close and loving and fun, and could say nothing bad about their son and brother.
I'm very sad that his family can't be with him all the time, but I'm so, so happy he's here.

2 Corinthians 1:12
For our boast is this, the testimony of our, that we behaved in the world with simplicity and godly sincerity, not by earthly wisdom but by the grace of God, and supremely so toward you.

Beautiful flowers - glad you had a special time. I can't wait to see Alice in Wonderland - the colours look amazing and Johny Depp is perfect in everything :)
