2. Deprivation breeds appreciation
These are two concepts that have been rattling around in my brain as I have contemplated leaving this Kenyan life and starting a new life in the States. Much of my old life is gone - I will not be returning to my old job. (Marti Smith, a former co-worker, is grieving this loss too.) But we are very thankful to be returning to some of our familiar friends and our beloved home.
Leaving here means saying goodbye to friends. A sad reality.
As you may have noticed, my photo does not illustrate all this.
