All The Things I’ll Miss…

China has become a second home to me in a way Ghana never did.  I don’t know why.  I feel bad about it.  It’s just not the same there that it is here.  There are so many things I have fallen in love with here that I feel this crushing weight when it comes time to leave.  When I left Ghana, the only thing that I felt bad about was that the plane wasn’t taking off faster.  Ghana made me never want to leave the U.S. again.  It left me broken.  China healed that.  Maybe that’s the difference.  I need time for the wounds of Ghana to heal, and then maybe I’ll learn to love it again.

In the meantime, there will be a China sized hole in my heart.

I’ll miss the beauty…




And the laughs…



ResponsiBoy will NOT miss the food…


Good thing we have plenty of burgers and fries at home too!  Poppy will be VERY pleased.
