Thank You

Thank you so much to all of you who left sweet comments and sent me well wishes after yesterday’s post.  It made me feel so much better!  I felt like Eeyore – all glum and depressing and bringing everyone down!

I am feeling much better.  Chris and I made a decision (I’ll tell you about it later) and that has taken a lot of the stress and worry off my plate.  The truth is that I for 99% of the time that we’ve been here, I’ve felt fine – happy, content, pleased with our situation and mindful of the fact that there are others who are in worse straits than me. We’ve made some great friends here, people who if I needed to, I could call and chat over cocoa.  We have a warm and friendly church community.  I know several Americans here who can commiserate on the things that we’ve left back in the States.  I’ve also got a wonderful husband 🙂  Overall, I’m doing just fine.  God is in control, and He’s shown me again and again that he’s not going to let me take more than I can bear.

Thanks again for being so sweet and understanding {and for the many offers from people who were willing to ship stuff over here – love it!  Thankfully, I have 5 sisters, 4 brothers, 6 sisters-in-law, 5 brothers-in-law, a mother- and father-in-law, and my parents who are all willing to ship things, too!}.  You guys are great 🙂

    It will get better and easier! I spent four months in Australia (while I know that isn’t as long as you will be there and I did live with a host family it did get easier!) and my only saving grace was having things shipped to me! Of course, not I am missing Tim Tams and you get to have them! 🙂

    But enjoy it, document it etc. You don’t know how long you’ll be there and it will get easier!

    Thanks for your comment, Jenny! I’ve loved reading about your adventures in NZ via your blog. I’m sorry about your homesickness! It sounds from this post that you’ve been adjusting pretty well, though. I’ll be praying for you!

    If only we could ship OURSELVES over there! Keep your chin up. You’re great for finding the bright side of things.

    Glad today is better – I have days of homesickness and I’m only 4 hours from where I would say I get homesick (the beach)! I hope you do read the Larsson trilogy – download it on the Kindle … enjoy!
