Trip to Lord Bao's family home and burial cave

We walked about yesterday, to get Calliandra out of the room and out of her funk. It worked slightly but she showed no real interest in what we were doing, seemed resentful and even turned down an ice cream on the way back. They even had her favorite - green pea.
Lord Bao lived about a thousand years ago and was know for his being, just, impartial and reforming corrupt practices.

OKay, so I seem to have failed at picture loading, I will need to try a different route now and figure this out before Bill flies home today.

Glad she's with you! IT is so cool that we can follow your journey. Technology has come a long way since I was last in China 4 years ago...I commented over at Alex's too :)

Got all my prayer warriors praying for you ! It will get better ! I sent your blog to my friend Starla, her daughter was older, and she grieved so badly, I knew she would be a good support for you.

I am crossing my fingers when I go get my older daughter that all will be well.

Love you my friend !

Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

Colossians 1:11-14 “May you be made strong with all the strength that comes from his glorious power, and may you be prepared to endure everything with patience, while joyfully giving thanks to the Father, who has enabled you to share in the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Hebrews 13:5 “…God has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.”
