Happy Mother's Day! (and more good news from Water Charity)

To our Moms:

You were there when we took our first steps,
And went unsteadily across the floor.
You pushed and prodded: encouraged and guided,
Until our steps took us out the door... (Like to Lesotho!)

You worry now "Are they ok?"
Is there more you could have done?
As we walk the paths of our unknown
You wonder "Where have my children gone?"
Where we are is where you have led us,
With your special love you showed us a way,
To believe in ourselves and the decisions we make.
Taking on the challenge of life day-to-day.
And where we go you can be sure,
In spirit you shall never be alone.
For where you are is what matters most to us,
Because to us that will always be home...

Hi Everyone,
We wanted to do a shout-out to our beautiful hard-working mothers, grandmothers and aunts and generally all of the lovely women in our lives! We are unable to do much for these wonderful people from here, besides give recognition and send bouquets of flowers with our minds (they are much more decadent that way, than if we would be able to physically send them anyway!) Lots of love and hugs from both of us!

On another happy note, we got approval for the Water Charity project. Please check out the link here for the full run-down! Otherwise, we are just keeping busy and I'll wrap up since I just did a big ol' post!

Thinking of you,
Shane and Carol
