Lots of things have happened over the past couple of weeks. So, I am taking a break from A Nomadic Love Story to play catch up.
The Worthy clan. In case you don’t know who they are, Charlie was our supervisor in Naples. Over the three years we were there they became some of our closest friends. Their children are our “nieces” and “nephew” and they and Lily are “missionary cousins”. They were in Virginia doing some training so we drove up to see them for a day. It was a great day, although short, but sometimes you take what you can get.
This picture pretty much sums up how daily life went in Naples. Paul taking pictures. One of the kids (in this case Emma) trying to get our attention. Alessia occupied with Baby Lily. Benjamin (aka Bubba) climbing all over Shannon. Charlie trying to avoid being photographed.
Alessia loves Baby Lily. In fact, the only nickname Lily has ever – or will ever have if I can help it- is Baby Lily, given to her by Alessia.
Good friends are hard to come by – especially ones that you can call or who calls several times a day just to tell you something a child has done or ask what your cooking for supper.
