Family letter

The other thing I did this weekend was write a letter to the boys' family in Burji. "Humbling" is not a word I use a lot, but sitting down to write that letter was definitely humbling. After deleting the boys' names, I made a word cloud out of the letter. I like that "family" and "always" are the most used words.


  1. Your word cloud paints a picture... A beautiful picture.

  2. This is profoundly beautiful. What an amazing exercise that must have been, to write that letter.

  3. I shouldn't be reading your blog right now. It's making me an emotional mess. Dangit. Beautiful.

  4. We just got back from our first trip, I wondered if I met your boys(!) or if you were on route to HH when we were leaving. This is beautiful and we need to do ours, but I can barely put a sentence together right now.

  5. where can i make one of those

    1. It's called a Word Cloud and there are lots of free websites where you can just copy and paste text to make one.
