I just figured out why I am so teary today, ok, one of the reasons. It is my mother's birthday, well at least here in Korea. I know these dates are important, when we are born, when we die. I love the fact we are forever linked together and not just blood relatives but everyone we love. So, today I give a birthday wish to my mother, thanking her for one of the most important things she gave me: consistency. She always did what she said she would, always. I miss her.

Afternoon with Sang Eui in Incheon

My FAVORITE sign in Korea, yet! Name of store: So So

The port of Incheon on the west coast of the peninsula.

On the boarder of China Town

Alice with Sang Eui in the background.

Oh, This Korean Land of Granite!

Elder K and I are always wanting to take home some of this abundant granite all over Korea--just a little for a nice pebbled walkway around our house? This is a new granite sign of our apartments.

One Olivia is Not Enough!

I would surely take 25 any day! Because she fills my life with joy with her testimony of Jesus Christ, her love of others (and always showing it--which is a big difference, my friend!), her sense of design, her obsession with paper, pens, pencils, her love of Kyobo bookstore, her fantastic family, her telling me details, and her love of Benjamin. I love this woman! Happy Golden Birthday: 25 on the 25th!

Happy Birthday to My Best Friend

He will spend 18 months carrying all of our stuff: material, food, and books! He never complains. He always takes the heaviest bag. I find this the perfect metaphor of how he is always trying to make my load lighter, easier, happier! He is strong in so many ways but especially in his testimony of the Savior, which, needless to say, strengthens my own. I am so grateful I get to walk by his side for eternity because I don't want eternity without him. Happy Birthday, Tootsie!

The Gracious Women of Korea

Can you believe she is 81?

Karen and her grandmother on one side, mother on the other. Triple beauty!

This, I will miss!
