Repatriation: Tailspin

I’m in a fog these days and am therefore having a difficult time organizing my thoughts and putting them into written form. We are less than one month away from moving back to the United States and I can’t even fathom how this process will unfold and take shape. My head is spinning with lists of things to do, things to see, things to buy, people to spend time with, phone calls to make, packing lists to create; and that doesn’t even include the day to day things (like caring for, feeding, and entertaining two 13 month olds who are starting to walk)! It seems like there is far too much to do between now and then; and while I find myself working hard to stay present in this moment, the inevitable elements of planning for a future move finds me growing more and more impatient as we enter the last few weeks of this process.

I call it the "M-Word" when it's town to town. I'm not sure what I'd call it moving from one side of the world to the other. We are praying for you as you experience mixed emotions and so much to do. Love to you all.. Grandma Pam

I picture a long trip to your favorite tea shop. I am thinking much of you through this time of mixed emotions... good byes, packing, feeling spread thin, and loving those sweet boys and being concerned about their adjustment and exposure to the stress of the M-word. Praying for you daily. Mom/Grandma Pam
