Not a creature is stirring not even a cat. What delicious quiet I am experiencing right now. Bells is in bed and I am the only other person home. Before dd moved back in, I had quiet from the time The Boy went to school until he came home. I cherished that time alone. Oh, well.
A big shout out of thanks to Meg for giving me the much needed info. I tried making the changes but spaces was persnickety again. I will take care of it when the pc is fresh!
I was able to spend time today with my young friend, J. For the last four or five years she has been working in "Eastern Asia" as a teacher/missionary and is now going to be a student for the next semester. I cannot name the country because it is considered "creative access" which means they don’t allow Christian missionaries.
J. has been learning the language of her host country and has decided to hone her speaking, reading and writing skills in university there. No slouch is she! She is a graduate of Harvard University in one of the areas of science. Nearly every time we get together I am able to pick her brain and she is able to teach me. It doesn’t matter that she is only 27 years old. She loves to teach and I love to learn. Today was a continuation of a lesson from the winter on the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia as well as a new lesson on mitochondrial dna.
The first time I saw J. was when she spoke at my church. I said to myself, "Self. You have got to get to know this girl." So, I did! I will miss her when she leaves again this week. Have a great trip, J. You are so very special. Thank you for your friendship. blessings, gail
