Sarong Cover-up

I received this gorgeous sarong from dear my sister-in-law. She was in Myanmar doing relief work soon after Cyclone Nargis, and came back with this for me.

Am thinking of taking this along for the holiday next week. Seeing imp's holiday entries is making me really look forward to mine. It'll be great even if it is half as good :)

Because of where this sarong comes from, I'm soberly reminded that I am really blessed amidst a lot of poverty, pain and suffering in the world. I'm reminded that I really am a steward of all I have been given, and that I should use what I have well, and in service to others.

I'm aware that I've kept the mood of this blog rather light and void of sharing of many deeper issues. Those have been kept to be voiced elsewhere.

But because that other side is a dollop of me as well, maybe I should start sharing more of it.

I'm hoping the holiday will also a spiritual retreat. Of quiet prayer and reflections.
