We got our Christmas packages off a few weeks ago. I'm afraid they aren't as interesting as they could have been. I'm not a very good package-maker. I can think of lots of fun things to put in a package AFTER I've sent it, but before...? I draw a blank. Besides, we don't have long until these boys come home, and I don't want to take up their luggage space with useless trinkets.
Not long until they come home? Yes, it is true. Only three months for the one, and six months for the other. The one who comes home sooner, I think might like to come home even sooner. Having a cute girl waiting anxiously for your return will do that to a guy. Ironically enough, the missionary who comes home later is wanting to extend his mission and come home even later. Why couldn't we have reversed these two, and the sooner would come home later and the later would come home sooner - and they would come home in the middle, at the same time! Then I would jump on a plane and fly to Africa and pick them both up and have a lovely little vacation and time with my boys.
...dreaming... but not reality.
Here's the real scoop on Madagascar. And South Africa. I'm just glad they are happy and doing well. May the Lord continue to bless them and keep them safe!
