Oh this is BEAUTIFUL!It literally took my breath away! I could clearly see the village and the children and the dust and hear the noises! I LOVE that Sam & Karen come and get to meet Miriam.
At first reading the one place that caught me was Miriam being able to read the english words that Karen has written on the card but I think as I read on, it was assumed she has grasped a very good understanding of english through the school there.
My favorite line was the 'frosting the card" one. Lovely story. and I'm not just saying all this because you are my....:) (u-no)
Wonderful story and love the prayers sprinkled throughout. The descriptions are vivid and great emotions.
Beautiful message...there are so many outside of our immediate families that would love to hear from us during the holidays.
