We’re still in the USA and contrary to my thoughts, I have barely been online. We’ve been surrounded by people and on the go and have barely pulled out our devices.
Our three weeks have been full and fun, family, wedding, Christmasses, friends, presentations, church, packing and sorting. If all goes according to plan, we leave for Ethiopia on Tuesday and that is met with a mixed response. I wish we could just snap our fingers and be back in Injibara, be through the gut-wrenching goodbyes, done with airports and long flights, wrapped up with our stock up shopping in Addis Ababa and just resettled in our cozy “blueberry” house, a safe place to teeter back into our places. But, it’s not possible and so we look ahead at walking through the hard and know there are lessons to be learned there. The Littles know it’s coming and it’s bittersweet for them, but our time has been sweet and now we pray through our next transition.
Thanks for the many of you who blessed us by your support in the last few weeks, I am so sorry for all of those friends who we were physically so close to and we didn’t connect!
Here’s a few, captionless pics of our last few weeks, it’s been so fun.
