It comes at the weirdest times! It is finally cold in Dallas and I opened a suitcase full of winter clothes that I packed this past spring. As I opened it smells of my home in Switzerland came out; clothes that I bought in Geneva were there….man…the little things are the things that catch you off guard. When I got home tonight I spent a while on the phone with a friend of mine that grew up as a missionary kid in Italy. Wow…it was so good! I loved talking to her about Europe! I get to see her this weekend…and her new little baby!!!!
I think I have a fear that I will “loose” the months I spent overseas. I pray that much of the culture and all of the growth stays at the depth of who I am.
I am going to Oklahoma on Saturday. It will be the first time for me to return to my college campus since graduation day a year and a half ago (weird!). I am so excited! I always took a walk on campus during the fall because it is so beautiful! Me being the emotional person that I am…and sentimental wonders what memories will come back!!!! I can’t wait! I get to see the family that I babysat for 3 1/2 years. I am ECSTATIC!!!!
