I have been back on this side of the pond now for a week. In some ways it feels as if I never left West Michigan; jumping back into routine and activities has kept me quite busy since arriving back on North American soil.
In other ways, time has stood still this past week.
There is much to process about this recent trip. I want to take my time. I want to put what I experienced into proper perspective.
I will be posting more pictures and stories over the next few weeks on my blog. Interent on the compound did not allow me to get on my blog often, and downloading/uploading pictures was a no-no.
If you are a 'friend' of mine of Facebook, you will have seen many pictures. James had the insight to purchase a Smart phone for me while in Ghana that I was able to use at G*lmi. It was a lifeline! I was able to receive and send text messages, and emails (occasionally). The things we take for granted!
During my first week into this trip, I received news that James and I will become grandparents towards the end of October/beginning of November.
Exciting times ahead :).
This past Friday we received a picture (via ultrasound) of our new little grandbaby. We also know the gender of this precious little one, but until mommy says it is ok to announce, this Gigi is keeping her silence, which is very hard...but, so far so good.
But...I can share the ultrasound picture...
Is that not the cutest little face you have ever seen? and look at that tummy! This Gigi is just a bit partial, and so very proud :).
I have had friends tell me that there is nothing like being a Grandma/Gigi. I knew it would be special, but this is just blowing me out of the water!
I just want to tell everybody :).
