I hope you enjoy my postings. My husband and I are serving a mission in Romania and have had some wonderful adventures. Each of us have experiences in our life that make us different from that time forth. These experiences have done that for us.

The "Old-Timers" meet again!

Last Friday we had a real treat when a group of our past senior missionaries joined us in our home for dinner. We had saramale, mamaliga and lots of other good food. Of course, we reminisced about the mission and the people we love in Romania. It was a real treat and again, we were so thankful for the opportunity we had to serve in that country with all of these dedicated and hard working people.

The Lofgreen's and below, the Cannon's.
Attending were the Wrights, Bryson's, Watson's, Jacob's, Lofgreen's, Bowman's, Hanson's, Sister Wallin, Dr. Moody and his wife, Evelyn, the Creamer's, the Cannon's, the Facer's, the Boyle's and of course us, the Ashby's!
"Old Timers"? Well, yes, I called this posting that because, after everyone walked into our home and were sitting around visiting, one of my kids came up to me later and said, "Mom, I've never seen so many old people in our house at the same time before!" I just had to laugh! Boy, is our perspective different than our kids! These people all worked their tails off with us in Romania. I never thought of a single one of them being "old"! Now, when I was young, I thought anyone 50 years old was up to his knees in the grave, but, since passing that milestone myself, I now realize what a young age 50 actually is! At any rate, it's really true that you are only as old as you feel! The spirit is young no matter how old the body gets and we saw that demonstrated so many times while working with these wonderful couples during our missions.
