Today I am thankful for working internet for the first time since the second week in January. Since we returned home we have been using 3G sticks which has required me to be vigilant about connecting and disconnecting all the time. Now I can lazily watch the emails roll in and out and my igoogle page renew itself so nicely. Hallelujah!

Today I am thankful for the watchful care of angels whose presence I feel every day. It is not usually I who picks up loads of gravel and containers of fuel to haul home.
