My beautiful friend, you were one of the best things about my summer. When I couldn't travel the world as I would have liked to do, you were there to give me a taste of your culture, the rich flavors of India.
St. James writes in the New Testament that good and perfect gifts are from the Father, and I do believe that your friendship is such a gift. Thank you for letting us share a little bit of the American experience. Someday, we'll find a way to make pizza, I just know it!
There's no denying that we will miss you, but I pray your birthday is blessed and that the coming year holds great joy for you and your family!
