Each day counts. The things we experience add up. Daily incremental steps toward a set goal become a beautiful whole in time.
The gift was inspired by a large sticker-replica of a Van Gogh they saw hanging in a doctor's office.

The best part of the experience was the togetherness. We hadn't seen one another in a while. She has not been able to attend our weekly art club in some time.

My, how the years go by! Son Stephan, our oldest, completed (as they say in Spanish) 48 years on March 12!

Sunday we celebrated March birthdays.

Sam's family was missing. He had surgery earlier this month--sinus repair and tonsilectomy. Interestingly, the worst pain hits a week later.
I stopped by a couple days after the procedure to drop off some honey to soothe the throat. Malachi was still home on spring break. He is really into board games and was sharing his latest find--Splendor.
I am blessed to meet every week with a wonderful group of writer friends. But I also recognize that for too long I've been a wannabee, attending conferences, taking courses, etc. and putting off the most important. These were all very good. However, now I am encouraged to keep on plodding through the letters and the memories, pulling out pertinent quotes and information, and arranging them into the narrative about my life in Argentina, and to write, write, write.
