Thanks for all your encouragement. Some of you asked about the kids. Let me just say that kids are the most adjustable creatures in the universe. They are loving life right now, even in our sorta yucky little apartment, even in the rain. They like the rickshaws and the scooter rides and the mangos. They are just happy.
And I am getting better, little by little. I realize that I have stored up a lot in the last few months that I am just beginning to process now. So it could be a while for me. But God sustains.
These are those magical moments, too, when you don't yet know how things will turn out, and later you look back and say, "do you remember when we first arrived, and we didn't even know this place yet?" and it is incredible to you.
Sometimes I feel like I hate it here, sometimes I have to breathe deep because I am panicking, and sometimes though, there I am, making oatmeal in the morning and it's okay. It will be.
