I thought it was going to be just another day on Friday, ho-hum, but when I collected the mail I was in for a great surprise.

Almost 18 years ago (wow that can’t be right!) we had the pleasure of meeting a young exchange student from Brazil.   Amazingly she still keeps in touch with us.  Don’t you agree that is very special.  She has sent us news of her marriage, babies and other news.

In Friday’s mail was this beautiful invitation to her daughter and son’s birthday party.  I was thrilled.

It is a pocket card.

Vicka added a little translation for us (luckily for me because I’m afraid the only Portuguese word I remember is Obrigado).

Thank so much (muito obrigado) Vicka for thinking of us.  It is very much appreciated.
