A Gift from the Heart

A few words, tokens, or simple reminders of home often mean so much more than we can imagine; perhaps more than I could imagine, until yesterday, when I read an e-mail containing the following message:

...We just don’t know how to thank you...Actually, we have thought of something special we want to do. On 11 Sep we are going to fly a US flag over our compound that will be your flag...

I am overwhelmed, so very honored and if not for the certainty that great thought and planning were involved in securing this gift from the hearts of a few who should give no more, would ask that the gift be bestowed on one more deserving than I.

I am profoundly grateful.

You are right, what a great honor. You deserve such an honor. You think of others before yourself, every day. You are an awesome individual and are actually deserving of so much more!
