Bittersweet Longing




Today I leave Little Rock for 75 days in Kathmandu, Nepal. While I've very excited about this huge adventure, this morning is filled with a bittersweet longing for those things I am about to separate from: Katie, Maggie, Ted, and all of my Little Rock friends. *SIGH*

I know that my going to serve the people of Nepal will enrich the lives I just mentioned as well as my own. But this morning, I just don't want to go. That's just the way I feel right now. I'm sure this feeling will wax and wane and be balanced by the excitement of the trip and the new friends I will make in Nepal. I'm going away to make us all richer.

    Julie! Sorry I missed out on your garden party last week! I hope all's well in Nepal! It's hot as can be here, and I am so jealous of your adventures!
