A Birthday Gift
This short story will tell you a great deal about Global Learning PARTNERS. The partners and staff are having their summer meeting in Rhode Island at Valerie Uccellani’s parents’ home in early June. I received a sweet invitation to join them – not for the meeting – but for the good fellowship, good food, ocean air and rocking chair porch so they can celebrate my June birthday with me. Enclosed in the invitation was a round trip air ticket and a reservation for nights at a nearby Ocean Inn. Friends who know me are not surprised that the invitation brought me to tears – of joy, of gratitude of deep affection for these PARTNERS.
