In going through a bunch of old photographs, I found this one yesterday. This is Raf's mother on the left and my mother on the right. This was taken at Carolyn's house on Christmas of 1997. That was over 11 years ago. Our mothers were both healthy and more or less in their right minds.
Both of them are gone now, and it was a blessing to find this photo of them looking so lively and happy.
Several of you have asked if we have heard from John. Yes, we have had several short emails. Evidently he is having a problem with the computer setup at the University of Shanghai. He also sounds very tired, which, of course, is jet-lag, among other things.
You have also asked what he is studying. It's the Chinese language and international business, and he is interning at a Chinese business.
Now, off we go to church in a few minutes. Then, this afternoon, we are going to visit the Dallas Museum of Art to view the 146 Turner paintings and eat dinner with my old friend and classmate, Helen.
So, Happy Mothers' Day to all you gals!
