Last night the inner Martha came out and I threw a dinner party paying homage to my India trip! It was a fun time had by all, particularly me. Everyone took turns donning a sari and dazzled with bindi on their foreheads!! Not to be outdone by the rich Indian fare-curries, naan, dahl, mango lassi's, chutneys and raita that everyone made! Actually the bash was two fold: to savor some Indian spices and to have one last hurrah with some great women.
Nothing bonds sisters together like birthing babies and supporting one another through numerous deployments. I truly believe God intended us to live in community bearing oneanother's burdens just as the military community does here in Okinawa. My dorm-like living in the tower lends itself easily to an open door policy, easily borrowing anyone's sugar!!! This people-lovin extrovert is gonna be at a loss when I can't barge in on my neighbors anymore!
I LOVE YOU GUYS and will miss you dearly....sniff sniff.
