Celebration, irises and small victory.

Sarah Salway has written a fascinating post about a recent trip to Syria. And then she's written a Three Happy-Making Things post, too.

1. Friends and well-wishers pour into my aunt's house bringing canapés, congratulations and cake.

2. I have been sitting next to a planter full of earth and moss. When I look -- really look -- there are delicate mauve irises that I just didn't see before.

3. Alec comes home in the same clothes he was wearing when he set out. Yesterday he had a new outfit at every change because of accidents.
