The Hurrier I Go...

It doesn't seem possible that eight months have passed since my last post!
So much has happened--so much to write about--so little time!
No, make that NO TIME!

And, still I have no time, but I'll leave you with a few pics.
I wish I could write more.
Maybe in another month, or two, or.....

'Gramma Sue'
"Gramma Sue"--that name is music to my ears.  This picture was taken November 1, 2010, the night I returned home from a week in Houston helping my former Saudi homestay student and his wife after the birth of their second daughter.

This is Malak, their firstborn. I also helped them when she was born in Houston back in 2008. Now she is two years old and sooo cute! And smart! We had a lot fun together! 

This is Areej at 4 days old. She's so calm and laid back. What a little sweetie. I only wish I could have stayed longer!

Now go back to the first picture and check out the plaque on the wall behind me. I bought that back in 1970, from a little country store in Pennsylvania. It's an old Amish saying:
"The hurrier I go, the behinder I get!"
....which describes my life to a "T"! [sigh] and is the real reason why I haven't posted in eight months!

I hope it won't be eight more months before I can post again, but if it is, I hope you won't forget me! 

Hurrying off to my next task.........

  1. Oh, I'm glad I checked your blog! Hope it won't be 8 months again either. Welcome back and loved your photos.

  2. thank you for keeping everyone here in your thoughts and prayers. Things are OK here where I am, but we are still getting aftershocks, and probably will for a while. The Northeast coast is completely destroyed. It will take a long time to rebuild, but thankfully, Japan knows how to make it out of disasters. Just please keep praying for us. Thank you so so so much
