I absolutely love that picture. It captures my feelings about our new friend.
Mikiko arrived on August 26th. She came full of energy and fun. She's 23. She's from London, Ontario. She's half Japanese/half Canadian. She shares our faith in God. And best of all, she lives a 5-minute walk from our apartment.
I'm really excited. Life here has taken a dramatic turn for the better. It's amazing when a person can just fit right into your life like they've been there all along. She comes over and we talk and talk for hours. And does she ever love to talk! Jeff's up against some steep competition now! We've missed having people who can just drop by. It's really cool to share tea with someone on a Sunday morning. And Ayako and I now have a third girl to add to our girls' night.
So that's the latest and greatest: our new friend.
