Stranger Friend Family


I challenged my grandson Gabriel:
If he would read this book, I would hike Badger Mountain with him.
Two days later, he called me. Book finished.
He even answered my bonus question.
What is meant by "three cups of tea" ?
He stood and paused.
"One cup of tea, we are strangers.
Two cups of tea, we are friends.
Three cups of tea, we are family"

Looks like we have a mountain to climb.
You rock, Gabriel!

What a lucky grandson. And what a blessed grandma.
Take pictures on your hike. I love seeing the world through your lens.

This is one of my 'classics' I love this book & greatly admire Greg Mortenson. His 2nd book that came out November 09 Stones into Schools is worth reading as well, if you haven't already.
