Tonight all the family and we here in Jerusalem will celebrate the Passover Feast - over Zoom! - how sad. We always sing at the end of the feast - "Next Year in Jerusalem" and Jerusalem, in English, amazingly has the same number of syllables as Santiago. So Happy Passover, join in on the song, and sing Santiago whenever the word Jerusalem pops up! Not to early to wish you all a very Happy Easter as well!!!

Shalom and Passover greetings to all. Thank you for sharing this song and good wishes: I was going to be in Jerusalem this year, in August- Sept for a Pilgrimage and course through St George's College, followed by 2 weeks on the Chemin d'Arles. Alas, this seems unlikely now, but I will share the song with my fellow Pilgrims. Next year in Jerusalem AND Santiago!!

We are a military family and have spent most of our time overseas. As our family grew, we celebrated birthdays, Christmases, pre-school graduations, etc., with our 4 children far from the rest of the family. We could use the phone, but it was through a satellite connection. For several tours, we waited at home in Japan for the operator to call us back to let us know our call to Connecticut was ready, and we ended each sentence with "over." I kid you not.

Our little company of 6 traveled many times around the world. Our family became the neighbors we shared celebrations with, cried about when they moved away, kept in touch with for a while through letters, and who live on in our precious photo albums.

Family means more than just the people who were born with a similar set of genes. Family are the people who are there when you need them. To share your laughs and successes, your pain and tears. This year of sadness and suffering (I just learned that my Mom is in the hospital on a ventilator!) can still bring us comfort and joy.

It can bring us closer to people and bring out the best in ourselves.
Or is it, bring out the best in people and bring us closer to ourselves??

I know it's after the fact, but, Scruffy 1, sing loud and proud, through Zoom (you lucky dog) with your family, separated by distance, but not by love.

Celebrate!!

"Next year in Santiago!" With my Camino family!!

Bless you and THANK YOU for Your Service!!!! 🎖
You're welcome, but honestly, the benefits far outweighed the costs. To have the opportunity to live in cultures so very different from my own. To be enveloped and delighted by the differences, and comforted by the similarities, and to be able to share all that with my children and my husband, was an unparalleled blessing (yeah, there were rough spots, deployments, emergencies, etc, but we are all safe, for the most part).

I wish all Americans would pull on their big-girl panties and go out and see the world. No, not just see, LIVE in the world outside of their cubbyhole.

But, LOL, I'm preaching to the choir here, on this forum. Pilgrims are not afraid and we see the wonder all around us.

Anyway, thanks for the thanks, it was (and continues to be) our calling and our pleasure.
💪
