A Call from the Space Station!

On Friday April 9 our phone rang at 6am. I answered it and heard, "This is Jim!" My response, "You're kidding!" Who knew we could get a phone call from space?????!!!? We talked for about ten minutes. He was so overwhelmed with the beauty of our planet from space and shared his astonishment. Steve asked, "What's weightlessness like?" and he shared that experience. Finally, he affirmed the value of our friendship, which meant much to us. It was one of the highlights of our lives!
Here they all are on the space station. Jim is almost at 12:00 (upside down). They undock today and return to earth on Monday.
