I wrote this post in January of 2012. Six months before we would leave Turkey and head to the Azores. It is so important, when I miss America and family so much, that I remember the good things about the adventure we've been on for most of our married life, but especially during the last five years.
I wrote of love an appreciation for the fact that my boys include other countries in their playtime.
Head scarves don't cause them to blink an eye.
That they use Turkish words and Portuguese words and Spanish words.
That different languages are just part of life for them.
Remembering the good in this life we are living as we head back for one more year overseas!
