Sometimes friends come into your world, out of nowhere, and you feel like you have known each other for years. Living overseas can be a lonely life. Getting used to having a small friendship base goes with the territory. So when someone who is your same age, shares your same passions, laughs at the same jokes, and listened to Brandy in the early 90's, comes into your world...well, it's like finding gold in your backyard. Janelle and I may have driven our husbands crazy with all of our "girls night out" festivities, but I think they understood that we were squeezing what, in our own culture, would have been cultivated over years, into a few short months.
We miss you guys and treasure our season together: Stephen, Janelle, Micah, Amarissa, and Ezekiel.
