Saying Goodbye

Saying Goodbye

Posted on 03. May, 2010 by in Thailand

Tonight we get on a plane and begin our journey back to the States.  We’ve said it many times, but it’s true- the time has really flown by!  When we woke up this morning and realized it has been a year in Thailand, we found it hard to believe this season of our life is already over.

I think the best way to describe my feelings lately is tangled.  Like a big knot.  Some excitement, some sadness, some stress, some trepidation… a lot that I can’t even quantify.  It’s hard to say goodbye to those we’ve shared life with this past year, but we’re also looking forward to catching up with those we love in the US and stepping into our next stage of life.

From here we fly to Beijing for a couple days (thought we’d swing by the Great Wall while we were in Asia :) ), then to see family in San Francisco for a couple days, onto LA for debriefing with FMI, and finally back to Michigan.  A lot of traveling, but it will be a good time to reorient our minds to life at “home.”

So Goodbye, Thailand!  It’s been fun!  We’ll miss you!

    I can’t believe the time has already come… Travel safe you guys!

    Will either of you continue blogging so we can stay up on what’s happening back in the US and your lives?
