What counts...

This pic is of Mallory on our trip to Europe with a South African woman who was in our tour group. She told us she had saved money most of her adult life for this trip to see Paris. She also told us stories about Nelson Mandela and how important he was to her, how she had cried and celebrated when he was set free. I've thought of this sweet lady this week and how sad she must be.
"What counts in life is not the mere fact that we have lived. It is what difference we have made to the lives of others that will determine the significance of the life we lead.” — Nelson Mandela
