Dear friends, God is so good to us.My nephew Ash (short for Ashish) and friend Megan arrived safely on the afternoon of Feb 24th. Their train was 2 and 1/2 hours late and I received then at the train station.While I was waiting I took some photos which I will post later on.
Ash brought us lots of gifts , it was like Christmas. The best thing is a commode raiser for Mama. Specialized health care equipment is not easily available in India as it is in Canada.
Yesterday Sonia arrived with her son Abner - and so we are having a mini family carnival. In the evening we went to a very posh shopping mall so close to my house, but for the very first time. I never thought of entering it before. Megan and Ash were so happy, they said it is like a mall in Canada. I took photos with my cell phone.
Then Ash ordered lots of pizzas from Dominoes. We ate so much and have tons of left overs to finish. Oh we are just enjoying ourselves.
Megan loves Allahabad and our food. She likes our cooking. And praise God she has not had any health or tummy problems, I was worried about that. She is drinking our filtered and boiled water too. She loves my dal (lentil soup). This morning we bought a Muslim style curry for breakfast with nan, , it was spicy but Megan ate it and enjoyed it.
Ash and Megan have gone to take a tour of the All Saints Cathedral -a heritage tourist site of our city. We are having our baths and getting ready . Later on we will go shopping in the old part of town.
In the evening I want us to go to the Horticulture and Flower Show. I have so much so share.
Sonia 's cough is better, but she looks quite weak. She needs a lot of rest which is impossible for her.
With all the activity and walking my knees were very strained and I was in a lot of pain. I took Ash 's Tylenol capsules but they did not work, this morning I got my paracetemnol and I am some better.Ha-ha!.
The weather is perfect, we 've had some rain too.
Thank you for your prayers. Namrita is better and misses us all. Ash and Megan had a lovely time with her family for 6 days. They are taking a lot of photos.

8 Let me hear what God the LORD will speak, for he will speak peace to his people, to his saints; but let them not turn back to folly.
9Surely his salvation is near to those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land.
10Steadfast love and faithfulness meet; righteousness and peace kiss each other.
11Faithfulness springs up from the ground, and righteousness looks down from the sky.
12Yes, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase.
13Righteousness will go before him and make his footsteps a way.
