A few additional snippets inspired by discovered photos.
The week after Christmas, we went camping in the mountains about an hour outside of Mae Sot. It was a lovely four days of rest and–something we get so rarely–silence. I read three books.
We hiked, we took freezing cold showers, and we climbed waterfalls.
December is the month-o-babes in this community. Every single year we make more trips to the clinic with women in labor and have more birthday parties to celebrate than any other month.
This was at Na Le Ton’s birthday, who I believe is the most like a little Stephen in the community. Because of this, he might hold an extra special place in my heart!
And this little babe–also born in December–just keeps gracing our presence.
