My Yarnie Buddha

Trang, my favorite sister-in-law, just got back home from a four and a half week long vacation to China and Vietnam yesterday. Still suffering jet lag, she has come to give my family some gifts. She always loves to gift. This is what she has given me, a hand carved marble Buddha statue from Non Nuoc Pagoda in Da Nang, Vietnam. It's not only the gift itself is precious, her carrying this heavy statue from a far away land and gifting it to me is more than a blessing. Blessing of friendship. I know that she really loves me. I feel content in this Sunday afternoon. " They who are content although poor, are rich." And I feel rich with love and gratefulness. I have found a special place for my Buddha, a very colorful place. I hope you agree with me, my dear Trang.
