Nönap--woman's day

March 8 is Woman's Day, when Hungarian men are supposed to give flowers to the women. Our girls loved the holiday when we lived in Hungary in 1990. It was more of a communist holiday that isn't as popular today. But the Apostle Paul said to "prove all things and hold on to the best," and we think this is one of the best to hold on to. So Caroly and I took tulips to all the women in the branch in a 5 hour "flower-thon". Of the 25 we visited, only one wasn't home--all were surprised and thrilled. We attached from Proverbs 31:10 "Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above the rubies."

Our camera ran out of battery power, so I had to recharge and take this picture at home so you could see the tulips we delivered. Caroly had already received the orchid and the poinsettia.
