It is now five years this month that I had my first sights from the airplane of my new home for two years. Next week I will fly once again to the Middle East. My husband has been in Kuwait working for the past several weeks. I have been given the opportunity to join him to celebrate Thanksgiving together and to visit with some very dear friends, who, three years ago, we thought our goodbyes were final. I can’t wait to hug them and spend some time together. Already the calendar is full! We are going to a Palestinian Cultural Exhibit, of course the Sadu House (and it just so happens they are hosting a bazaar on Saturday.)There are lunch dates scheduled and of course a visit to the Fabric Souk! Good thing John will be working!
I am thankful for the many opportunities and experiences I have been given over these years, living and traveling throughout the world. I have met exciting and interesting, really wonderful people! My views of the world, life, love, support and purpose, have broadened. Daily I am challenged, because of the people brought into my life to continue to keep my eyes wide open.
To new friends and acquaintances here and abroad, to my very dear life long friends, my very precious family and husband, and to God who loves us all….thank you!
