It’s with mixed emotions I write these words. How can one express the joy of seeing the ones you love and the sadness that comes over when it’s time to say goodbye?
Being in a foreign land seems strange at first, but you realize that as long as you’re with family, it really doesn’t matter where you celebrate Christmas.
I hope Patti and myself were encouraging to the many workers we met and broke bread with. We will leave knowing that there is a healthy group of community here, loving and friendly. What a joy it was to share just a small part of living here. Wonderful memories were made with our wonderful hosts, “The Brown Family”. We leave here knowing all is well! PS… if you’re in the “neighborhood” please stop and say hello.
