My precious Samm,

What an incredible tribute you have carefully composed in photo and descriptive format to capture the essence of Debbie's recent visit to South Africa. This is so "typical Samm", including everyone and something concerning just about everything Debbie's holiday entailed. Your remarkable interpretation of the photos and their essence or meanings is poetic excellence. Thank you for taking the precious time and effort to render such a comprehensive account of what was for our whole family, especially for Dee a most memorable and happy 3 weeks.
You are so special Samm and you are loved beyond measure.

With all our love
Your very proud Mom and Dee

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think
I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely
broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try
to get the hang of it!
