Happy Birthday to Us!

They started our day with surprise greetings, balloons and cakes.  They are my students at the community college and they're also my wife's customers at our computer shop.  

Today is my wife's birthday.  She celebrates a day before I celebrate mine.

Life in the province and running a business everyday can be very tiring for my wife who has a chronic illness.  But see how radiant she looks as these young people celebrate life with her.  How could we not cherish them after 3 years of classes together and after 3 years of almost daily stops at our shop?

We're so thankful for their love, laughter and friendship.  In just a couple of months they will be out in the field as practice teachers.  Six months more and they will get their hard-earned diplomas.

It's strange how we can rejoice at being with important people while being sad at the same time at the thought that soon they will be moving on.

I pray for all the best for precious ones like them.
