My friend Richard Norby that was hurt in the terrorist attack yesterday had an post on about his condition.  Richard Norby, a missionary serving in the Paris, France mission was injured in the bombing of the Brussels Airport on Wednesday 22 March 2016. He sustained several wounds from the shrapnel, second-degree burns to his head and neck area, along with more severe trauma from shrapnel to his lower leg. After a lengthy surgery, he was placed in a medically-induced coma, and will remain in this state for the next few days, with a lengthy recovery expected. His wife, Pamela Norby, was not at the airport at the time of the attack and is supporting him during this challenging time. They served as mission presidents on the Ivory Coast from 2003 to 2005.  This news has made me a little down today worrying about him.  You just never know when tragedy is going to occur.  

The contractor over our remodel shared a cool picture with me.  This picture shows all four season on the same tree in Tidal Basin. 

This weekend is the peak of the cherry blossom.  Everyone liked to view them from Tidal Basin.  


  1. My heart goes out to that missionary and his family. That's crazy that you knew him. We'll be praying for him.

    That picture of Tidal Basin so cool!

  2. Prayers for that missionary and his family. So sad.

    That picture is neat.
