day 103: african anticipation

I heard about Kenya today as a member in our ward spent the final hour of church talking about his experiences recently on a humanitarian medical expedition there.  My heart hurt a little, but it is allowed to hurt now since Elder B will be home in just ten short days.  I am glad I was spared from sad feelings for 23 3/4 months.  I feel very blessed.

:-) Kaz-Is that awesome pic of the Mopane(?) tree one taken by Perry? I am SO in an Out of Africa mood right now. :^)

Let the countdown begin! So excited for you and your family.

I am also glad that you were spared gory details until now.

that is so cool that your son is coming home soon. Makes for a great Christmas present eh.
He will have so much to share with you.

I can't believe your son is coming home in 10 DAYS!!! (Okay, how can you and G be parents of a RETURNED missionary?? We just aren't that old!!) I'm so excited for you. Can't wait to hear about his mission.

I hope the time passes quickly and only serves to add to the joy upon seeing him again.

And may I just say, your new profile picture looks so much like your mom. I can almost hear "Give me strength" whenever I see it.
