Highlights from Manitoba
This week we have been in Manitoba and have been making more memories and catching up with family and friends.
The picture above shows Arthur's parents' house on the farm where we are staying.

Our Biggest Highlight:
We joined Arthur's sister who celebrated her last cancer radiation treatment on Friday. (She finished chemo a few months ago.) We decorated in green and ate only green food as a symbol of new life. Before we ate, each person at the table read a phrase similar to the positive ones found in Ecclesiastes: "a time for rejoicing, a time for gathering, a time for life..." Then Arthur's dad prayed a prayer of thanksgiving.
