We have appreciated your comments about the girls and their situation in Thailand. Many of you offered kind thoughts, and Ginger's comment, based on her experiences, had a calming effect. Thank you.
In our version of It's a Small World After All, our neighbour's son teaches in Taiwan, and he has a good friend who teaches in Thailand. So, this nice teacher from Thailand wrote us a most becalming email assuring us that all was peaceful and orderly and that the girls could certainly contact him. Phew!
But, as the days passed we were quite anxious to hear from them and were greatly relieved when they finally blogged last Thursday, a whole week after their preceeding note. Double phew! Then on Friday night, actually Saturday morning, they actually telephoned to reassure us even more. Yesterday, they blogged again, and all remains well.
Thanks again for you concern. For those who want to read of their latest adventures, their blog is here. Cuppa has mentioned both her angst and relief too.
