I saved some M&M’s so the boys could have a countdown til departure starting at 100 days. Each day they each get to eat one M&M from the container. I also marked on the calendar in increments of 10, counting down til departure. Tuesday marked 90 days. That seems so far and so close at the same time. I feel the crunch of trying to line out things like housing, transportation, etc… in the US while trying to sort, organize and pack up in Cameroon.
We are looking forward to seeing people and doing many things we can’t do here, however, at the same time we aren’t looking forward to the many goodbyes to say here and leaving other people and things behind.
Life is filled with hellos and goodbyes. May God give you His grace as you do both.
Sounds bittersweet. Open arms await you here!
