This is a Top Ten List dedicated to our Mom's, Elaine & Jane on Mother's Day.  We realized that we wouldn't be in Armenia WITHOUT THEM!  Of course they gave birth to us but they also instilled many things in us that have helped us get here, survive here, & thrive here in Armenia.  (I know they are both shaking their head's and saying, "They're blaming this on us!?!"  : )  We love you both dearly and cherish you as our mothers.  We also want to pay tribute to our Grandmothers too!  Geganoosh (Gertie) Kazarian and Isabelle Najarian, whom are still blessing us with their lives on earth and Grace Garo & Lillie Karabian who proclaim God's greatness and majesty in heaven.  (Don't worry we have another list for Father's Day!)

10.  Talk to EVERYONE.



 7.  Act SHNORKOV (in other words BEHAVE).

 6.  Love of TRAVEL (they both love to see the world).

 5.  ADVENTUROUS (they don't want to leave any rock unturned).

 4.  Be JARBIG (go after what you want without being shy).

 3.  Throw the BEST PARTIES


 1.  For goodness sake have on the right SHOES!

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints."   Ephesians 6:10-18

Thank you MOMS for EVERYTHING!  and for a special treat read this wonderful short story by a good friend SHARLA SEIDEL and take action!  Love Jonelle; )
