We had another really sucessful day distributing solar lights. The WOL team and village elders served so many people today! We have all fallen in love with Nepal.
I have learned alot about the Nepalie culture since our WOL team arrived a few days ago in Katmandu. One of the greatest things I have observed is how important the family structure is and how well the families care for their parents as they age. It saddens me that this is not the norm within the United States.
The elderly within the village here seem to have a real postion of respect and honor.
Regrettably, both of my grandma’s had passed by the time I had been born so, I never knew what it felt like to be cared for and loved on by a grandma. Thanfully, I see how great my mom is with all of her 9 grandchildren and feel so happy that all of my neices, nephews and my own son have had eldless hugs, love and affection from their “Mimmie.” Love you mom and dad! Thank you for all that you have done for Nancy and I when we travel and when we are home. We couldn’t do what we do without your help, love and support!
