My nephew Crew who I've had lots of time with.
That being said. There are some very hard days! A few weeks ago I went to see the movie The Space Between Us. It's about a 16 year old born and raised on mars visiting earth for the first time. I found that I oddly related to the boy. I have not been living on Mars but reentering the States after 4 years in Africa feels a little the same. Sometimes I feel like the more I try to connect the more out of place and different I feel. I am so thankful for the family and friends God has surrounded me with to give me time, space and a listening ear to walk out this transition with me.
I miss my friends from the ship. I miss the tight community I was a part of for 4 years. At the same time I am thankful to catch up with people in America. It just takes time I suppose.
Thanks to those of you have been a part of this journey and supported me in every way!
