|Thanksgiving with my dear sister Leah - the first Thanksgiving we have spent together since 2003.|
When you see, talk to and embrace people you have not seen for well over a year, or you meet new ones you have only ever heard about, your heart tends to expand - filling with joy.
|Me, far right, with my good friend and fellow missionary Karina, whom I have not seen since June in Uganda, and my beautiful Marmee (Mom).|
Oftentimes you don't truly treasure something or someone until you have to be apart from it for an extended time or over a long distance.
Though I am happy Christmas and its related activities are just around the corner, I am even more excited to connect and reunite with others in the coming days and weeks!
|With dear, dear friends|
Make it a treasured memory.
