There are days...

... when I am particularly homesick!

Recently a young friend of ours got married. She is the director of a programme called Won Life, which we visited on our last trip to South Africa. They do some pretty amazing work among people with HIV/AIDS.

Today, I got to see the photos online.

She was walked down the aisle by her grandfather, because her Dad conducted the service. He married us, too - nearly 21 years ago!

The song item was sung by one of South Africa's foremost singers.

My husband's sister and brother-in-law were in attendance as were my best friend and her husband, and several of our close friends from Cape Town. The magnificent photos were taken by one of Cape Town's top wedding photographers who happens to attend the same church as all these much loved and missed aforementioned people.

It was with mixed feelings that we looked at their smiling faces in the photos.

There are days...
