We have a small group of wonderful friends here in Belize, but there are times that we feel very cut off from the U.S. and our past life.  For some folks, that's why they're here.  That's not the case for us.  We came for economic reasons.  We sorely miss our family and friends.  What a joy it was to have a visit, albeit a short one, from our dearest, long time friends, Marge & Jack.  We've known Marge since our children were in preschool together.  It's scarey to realize how long ago that was.  They're such delightful people.  We could have spent weeks together, but we picked them up from the airport on Sunday and they returned to Florida on Wednesday.  Lots to catch up on in a short time.  We've had a lot of rainy weather, but Belize put on her best face for them.  It magically became a little overcast (which kept it from being too hot), but no rain for their visit.  It was beautiful.  Art & I laughed as it started raining right after we returned home.  I feel so blessed now to sit back and think about our wonderful time together and am so thankful that they continue to include us in their lives.
