A child's perspective

We are blessed with many friends and benefactors at the monastery. Many share our lives in different ways, so, some get to know us pretty well. I received this birthday card from a young friend who shared her perspective of me. I find it interesting because it doesn't portray me in what I believe are my greater contributions to the life of the monastery. It's a good reminder that our simple and more humble duties are often of greater service to others.
