Bon Anniversaire!!

Before leaving Yaoundé I wanted to make sure I would be able to wish my mom a very happy birthday, and I really had no idea what the communication situation would be like in the north province. Therefore, I wrote this post two weeks ahead, just to make sure its message would arrive on time.

Happy Birthday Mom!!

After having lived with several other families, my original mom is definitely my favorite. Can’t wait to see you in a few weeks, but don’t be surprised if your “birthday present” looks a lot like a regular souvenir.

And because I try really hard not to post without pictures, here’s a shot of lightning on the beach in Kribi. I tried to come up with something corny about my mom lighting up my life to tie it to this post, but honestly it’s just because I really like the picture.


  1. Thank you my darling!!!!! Guess what??? Of all the daughters that I have had live in Cameroon you are definitely my favorite :-) (Becca and Mary please note of the daughters that are currently in Doylestown and Stickney the favorites are Becca and Mary whew!)
    Picture is awesome and totally the kind of thing I would love....but where are the fireflies?????
    Love you very much and remember only 4 groups of 10 and some leftover:-)!!!!!


  2. I love that your mom speaks math! Happy Bday from one Mary to another. She is my fav Hope student in Cameroon. :)
