Good Armenian Morning

I can be a cyber junkie. First thing I do in the morning is check my e-mail and my blog for any good stuff and this morning I was not disappointed. I was a missionary in Bulgaria and while there had two baptisms...a husband and wife who are Armenian by the names of Lily and Aren...sound familiar? I love these two beautiful people with all my heart and although communication is sometimes few and far between because of limited access to a computer and snail mail, we still have kept in touch over the years. I rejoiced when they had their little boy Benjamin and cried with them at the death of their other child when Lily was seven months pregnant.

This morning I woke up to this...

"Hello my dear i have great news we have new member of our family. his name is Daniel he is borne on 3 January he weits 2.500 kg and 50 sm.He is very smoll but very nice .I just wont to shear my happyness wite you .I am happy for you and your family .Tell tham that maybe one day we will met again a have a lot to tell but cunt write sorry for my simple English many kisses and hugs all your family. wite love Lily ,Aren ,Benjamin @ Daniel. :* "

To my sweet Lily, my darling Aren, and beautiful Benjamin and Daniel whom I have yet to meet...I love you all and thank my Heavenly Father daily that I was able to be a part of your lives and that you could be a part of mine. Yes kez si'rumem!

Oh, that is so cool! It has been ages since I have spoken to Lily. I am so happy for them that they have another child to love. I'm so happy for you that they wrote to you to tell you. What a blessing to know and hear from them. I served in their area too at the end of my mission and enjoyed their company. It's nice to hear updates. Please send them my love along with yours.

I almost started crying(what am I talking about I have tears-I am emotional unstable today)The picture of them sent me over the edge. Thank you for that post! I love, LOVE, Aren and Lily!!!!!!! I am so glad that you keep in touch with them-we need to go to Bulgaria to visit them together!!!!!! That is wonderful about the new baby-they are the coolest! Give them my love when you next talk.
