What More Could I Ask For?

Mother's Day 2008: How Blessed I Am!

(Fun story about the matching outfits: In Tanzanian culture, when a woman gets married, she chooses a fabric that all her female friends buy from her. The women take this fabric and have it made into an outfit of some kind, and then wear it to her shower (called a Kitchen Party here) and/or her "Send-Off" Party--the party given by the bride's parents the week before the wedding (the groom's family pays for the wedding itself). Grace and I went to Esta's sister's Send-Off Party a month or so ago, and these were our outfits. It's fun to go to one of these events and see all the ladies wearing outfits with matching fabric.)
