1. Mother's Day. None of my children live in driving distance but they are always good to call or text to wish me a Happy Mother's Day. Makes my whole week.
2. A couple of things have pushed me to start scanning my photos. Mission Aviation Fellowship is writing an article on how they have helped bring Bible translations to groups of people who don't have the Bible in their languages. Since MAF was an intregal part of our ministry in Indonesia, they asked us for information and photos of our time there. So we did that and dug out some photos and scanned them. Then our kids' house mom in their boarding school hostel has been posting on facebook lots of pictures she has been scanning. So...I've been inspired! And since organizing and scanning my pictures has been a goal of mine for YEARS, I jumped in this week and have begun.

And of course I had to stop and snap a photo of the Isla Vista pier
4. On Wednesday, we decided to get in a long walk along the beach and through the town before the rain came. Oh, it was wonderful to watch the waves roll in and smell that sea air.

5. Rain! It is so unusual for Southern California to have rain in May. I loved just listening to those drops hit the ground.
